BVM Caritas - 30 Years

It was a frosty morning at Caritas of Birmingham, Alabama, Monday March 21, when the first call came in to take advantage of the extraordinary low sale pilgrimage price going to Medjugorje that is only lasting 72 hours. It was precisely at 5:01 A.M. One minute after the sale began. Soon, the rest of the phones lit up.

BVM Caritas Representatives Answering Phones March 21, 2016

Caritas Community members answering phones since 5:00 AM, Monday, March 21, 2016.

As our life in community is missionaries for Our Lady, we do not own ourselves, but we live for others and their conversion, as Our Lady of Medjugorje said on December 25, 1992:

“…do not forget that your life does not belong to you, but is a gift with which you must bring joy to others and lead them to Eternal Life…”

Answering phones at 5 AM, is a very small offering to Our Lady that you cannot normally pass off to a paid employee to do for you, but has to come from a heart dedicated to the conversion of others. This is precisely the kind of heart you want to bring you to Medjugorje.

Since a Friend of Medjugorje began BVM Caritas Medjugorje Pilgrimages, 30 years ago, it is a gift that we continually share, rising early to help those in need, answering their questions, calming their apprehensions about traveling so many miles from home, and most of all, praying and sacrificing for them. It is a labor of love that pays off not in monetary value, but in conversions.

“…From our first contact with Caritas, to boarding our flight, to begin our journey home, we were taken care of very well. We do not want to lose what we just experienced in Medjugorje so we have made daily changes in our lives since we are back home and we are so grateful and blessed to have had this incredible opportunity to make this pilgrimage; happy that we did it through Caritas!”
