“Medjugorje, all the messages indicate, it is the place of the triumph of Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart…”
– Friend of Medjugorje
When preparing for this year’s BVM Caritas 72-Hour Medjugorje Pilgrimage Sale, which ended last night at midnight, we were already receiving calls from people across the country asking for more information and letting us know they would be calling to take advantage of this life-changing gift. This is no surprise, as it is very clear that Our Lady’s blessing is alive every day. A Friend of Medjugorje wrote:
“…Since 1981, Our Lady has blessed the world each day. This blessing has some profound nature in helping the whole world. Medjugorje is the ‘living’ source from which this blessing flows…”1
These blessings of Our Lady have been flowing out into the world from Medjugorje, and the whole world knows it. A Friend of Medjugorje has said that deniers of Medjugorje are being crushed by its fruits, fruits so visible that they are undeniable, except to those who want to deny them.
Below are just a few comments we received from pilgrims who called in during these days:
“That’s a bargain, what you put together is awesome! You guys really pull it together for airfare! Daniel (my son) is on cloud nine…”
J.O. from Washington
“I didn’t even have a calling to go… I just said, ‘Yeah I’ll go for it.’”
E.G. from Florida
“…I went [to Medjugorje] as a child in 1998, and want to bring my children now… This sale makes it possible…”
“I have never been to Medjugorje. I was reading about it yesterday from the information I got in the mail – in faith… I’m going…”
B.C. from California
“This will be my 3rd time going to Medjugorje. I don’t know how much longer the Blessed Mother will continue to appear. I want to take this opportunity to go and have a closer relationship with Her…”
S.S. from Connecticut
Thank you to all who have prayed during these days. Many people had circumstances arise which made it all of a sudden possible for them to go. We talked to one couple who had not completely decided to go. The wife really wanted to go to Medjugorje, but the husband was not 100% decided to go. For the three days of the sale, the wife called and asked for prayers for her husband. Finally, last night, without them knowing about it, we made itineraries for both the wife and her husband. We called them and spoke to the husband and said, “We made out the pilgrimage flights for both of you.” The husband started laughing and said, “Alright, alright, book me, I’ll go.”
Again, these are just a few of the stories we are sharing with you. As with every pilgrimage to Medjugorje, many stories do not come full-circle until the pilgrimage itself, and so we wait with anticipation of seeing how God is moving to bring people to Our Lady’s village, where She is preparing the triumph of Her Immaculate Heart, through the triumph of individual hearts.

Remember that a Friend of Medjugorje will be present during this May 28 – June 6, 2018, pilgrimage to Medjugorje, and will be speaking to the Caritas group several times. We are always excited when our pilgrims can hear from this first-hand witness of the messages, and one who has written more on Medjugorje than anyone in the world. People are still welcome to join the May 28 – June 6, 2018, pilgrimage at the normal fare.
