You Are Invited to Caritas June 24-25!

 

For Immediate Release – Updated June 10, 2011 A.D.

Be At Caritas June 24-25, 2011

Saturday, June 25, 2011, marks the 30th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady in Medjugorje. Since June 1981, the Virgin Mary has been appearing daily and blessing the world. This is a very special feast, and in Medjugorje, Our Lady requested that June 25 be celebrated as the feast of the Queen of Peace.

By God’s timing, throughout this year as well, Caritas of Birmingham is also celebrating 25 years as a mission. For those who were not able to come to Caritas March 19-23, it was a beautiful grace-filled time with Our Lady here at Caritas, and we wish to continue in our celebration of what Our Lady has done through Medjugorje.

It is in this spirit that the Community of Caritas is extending a special invitation for anyone within driving distance to join us at Caritas for the Medjugorje anniversary weekend of June 24-25, 2011. A list of nearest hotels are available below. Free primitive camping is available on the grounds for anyone wishing to come. If you are interested in camping, please call Caritas at 205-672-2000 (ext. 382) to receive more information and to let us know you are coming. Again, there is no cost to camping, but we do need to know if you are coming and camping.

  1. “Gambler? Look at what happened shortly after Fatima? People went right back to their hedonistic ways. Medjugorje? Millions of catholics and priests are still unaware and those that know, are wondering why it is 40 years of what told me, ‘similar message day in and out’ As we see with the PC crowd that preaches conformity to the state, millions take Solace in reality TV, ESPN, prosperity preachers who say ‘all is well’, looking at their IRA’s and again, assuming ‘all is well.’ Despite her hundreds of pleas and warnings, ‘He will come like a thief in the night’ while millions panic. It is those who are preparing their souls for eternity who are the calm ones.”

  3. Yesterday, going to the Dump, my normal way was closed for repairs. Still the dump was no further than 3 miles. In this time of Grace, God has used, “Interruptions in My Plans,” to ensure, I’m doing His, so I wasn’t surprised as I now drove past a person dragging a huge suitcase down the road. I pulled over, as done for many, over the years, along the road. Nowadays, most recognize no one’s going to stop if they’re hitchhiking, so you don’t see that “Thumb,” anymore. Middle aged, the man got into my car after we struggled to get his overstuffed suitcase on the back seat. Covered in poorly drawn tattoos, a Chain for a necklace, my courage wained as I continued to pray to God, trusting him, but my hand pulled out a mask, even though I thought of Father Damien & his Lepers, telling myself perhaps, he’d be more comfortable if I wore it. After “We” dumped my load, I drove as far as he needed to go, as a witness, to go that extra mile, for Jesus. Neither One of Us Wore a Mask, Anymore.
