Part of an old Caritas group from 1986, when a Friend of Medjugorje was still leading the pilgrim groups. The structure of the groups from 1986 till those today are very much the same, grounded in messages of Our Lady. Though these fields no longer exist behind St. James Church, and Medjugorje has advanced to more modern living, the grace of conversion is still very much alive, though it is harder to receive. This is why who one travels to Medjugorje with is very important in order to have the best structure available.
A Caritas Community member recently asked a Friend of Medjugorje, “Why one should go to Medjugorje?”
A Friend of Medjugorje spontaneously responded:
“The deeper I dug into Medjugorje, I began to realize the magnitude of it, and the more I thought about it, the more I realized what a fool I would be not to go.”
Our Lady of Medjugorje said on September 25, 2003:
Come close to Our Lady’s heart. Then will you comprehend the gift of Her presence. Do not let an extraordinary opportunity pass without taking it, or at the very least, to let others know about it. Spread this to all your family, friends, prayer group members and mail lists.
