Where is the true rest of the soul? In these days when vacation is on the minds of most people, it would be good to reflect on the true rest of the soul:

August 27, 2010

“…Dear children, rest, rest in My Son. Decide for My Son. Set out with Him and then you will receive peace and joy…”


Set out with Him?

Barefoot Medjugorje Pilgrim

A pilgrim in Medjugorje, walking up Apparition Mountain barefoot. This is a common sight, as the penance of doing something hard on the body, brings peace to the heart and cleansing to the soul. This is at the very core of the BVM Caritas Medjugorje Pilgrimages, of being hard on the body to rest the spirit.

Our Lady says to, “set out with Him…” “Set out,” means to follow Him. Follow Him where? Follow Him on the Way of the Cross. Our Lady is telling us that this is where we will, “…rest, rest in My Son…” This understanding is what is at the very heart of the BVM Caritas Medjugorje Pilgrimages.

But, can the penance of a pilgrimage really bring rest? A recent BVM Caritas Medjugorje pilgrim to Medjugorje wrote to us:

“…it was better than the best retreat I have ever attended. It was even better than the best vacation we ever had… I wish I could go every year…”

May/June 2016 BVM Caritas Pilgrim

There is still a little space available on the July 28 – Aug. 6, 2016, pilgrimage to Medjugorje. However, the Sept. 27 – Oct. 6, 2016, pilgrimage to Medjugorje is sold out. The Oct. 26 – Nov. 4, 2016 pilgrimage has availability at this point, but the pilgrimages fill up quickly.

When a Friend of Medjugorje founded BVM Caritas Medjugorje Pilgrimages, 30 years ago, it was foundationed on the basic messages of prayer, peace, fasting and penance. Is your soul in need of rest? With so many things in the world that assail us everyday, the tiredness it causes the heart, Our Lady has given so much peace and rest for souls going to Medjugorje. Be sure to call in the U.S. 205-672-2000, extension 218 or 219, or visit here to request information about a soul-resting pilgrimage to Medjugorje.
