Catholic Association “Emmaus” from Sarajevo came to Medjugorje

date: 13.04.2015.

The members of the Catholic association “Emmaus” from Sarajevo arrived on Saturday, April 11, in Medjugorje on a pilgrimage to the Queen of Peace. Since Medjugorje is known as the confessional of the whole world, many of them took advantage of the opportunity to receive the sacrament of reconciliation.  The highlight of the day was the climbing of Cross Mountain and praying there. Ivona Bajo, a student from Nova Bila, an active member of the Emmaus association, told us that she had participated in the Youth Festival for many years as an active member of YouFra: “Those experiences made a huge impression on me and made Medjugorje a place that I have gladly visited ever since. More than anything else I love the peace that one can feel here, but I am also fascinated to see so many people in one place, all radiating faith, hope and love. The boldness of people who make sacrifices when climbing Cross Mountain always reveals new strength to me and I appreciate prayer and perseverance more each time I go there. After this pilgrimage, I can say for sure that I am much less afraid of everything that an unpredictable future may bring.” (
