Message, 25. February 2015

“Dear children! In this time of grace I call all of you: pray more and speak less. In prayer seek the will of God and live it according to the commandments to which God calls you. I am with you and am praying with you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Karen Carden and Marie Gastefsen: „The Meeting in Medjugorje is a great help to us”

The 22nd International Meeting of Organisers of pilgrimages, Leaders of Peace Centres, prayer and charity groups in Medjugorje, that gathered this year nearly 400 participants from 23 countries, we met Karen Carden from Florida and Marie Gastefsen from Portland (USA). Karen has been coming for 17 years now and this is what she told us: “This Meeting is a great help to us, we get many ideas and we are listening to the needs of priests that are active here, therefore we are trying to help them by bringing pilgrims in the right way. This task is very demanding, as we are trying to help people and bring close to them messages of Our Lady. That is the hardest, to work with so many different people that need to function as one unique group once they arrive to Medjugorje”, said Karen. Marie told us that in her town, there is Information Centre where she volunteers for more than 20 years. She is currently the president of that organisation. She told us how important this meeting is: “I hear the experiences of other people, what they do when they bring pilgrims, we hear what is that priests would like us to do when we come here and how to handle certain situations. The seminar last year was one of the best we ever had and this one is right next to it. Fr. Marinko’s approach and his enthusiasm is a wonderful contribution to everything. He tells us so clearly about what we are suppose to do in our life and work.”

Seminar of prayer of the Herzegovina Regional Fraternity of YouFra held in Medjugorje


The seminar of prayer of the Herzegovina Regional Fraternity of YouFra was held in Domus Pacis in Medjugorje from February 20-22, 2015. There were 53 participants along with Fr. Slaven Brekalo, the Regional Spiritual Assistant of YouFra and members of the regional council. “This seminar made strong impression on us at the beginning of this Lenten time and it was the wonderful opportunity to work on ourselves, as well as to meditate on the sacrifice Jesus did for us. Day by day, step by step, we spent time learning skills that will help us in our prayer life. The prayer was obligation to most of us prior to this seminar, but after this experience, we are hoping that would change. We realised how important the prayer is, because God is in prayer and God is the beginning of all”, the participants of the seminar of prayer shared this with us.

Medjugorje Film - Our Lady Queen Of Peace


Mother of God – the best pastoral theologian 

Max Domej from Gebetsktion Wien spoke to Cardinal Christoph Schonborn, Archbishop of Vienna, during his visit to Međugorje.
Both in Lourdes and Fatima the events first ceased and than Church had its decision about that. Its final decision. Sooner or later that will take place here as well, but in this case we let Mother of God with freedom of choice...I think that Medjugorje can continue well on their journey, with full trust that Church, Mother and Teacher, in this case, is going to continue to monitor their journey.
