The experiences of participants of the 25th Youth Festival in Medjugorje

date: 08.08.2014.

It happens very often that whole families arrive to Medjugorje for the Youth Festival, young children and their parents and we had chance to meet family Nikolic, Croats from Zurich. Their message was: Come to Medjugorje. Ljiljana is a mother of four children and has been coming to Medjugorje for several years now. She told us briefly: “I am not here at the Festival for the first time and every year I bring my children. We try to pass on Medjugorje on our families, friends, even at the working place.” Her husband told us that they have been coming here for 20 years now. Ana Cassignol (31) came to Medjugorje from Paraguay. This is her first visit and she told us: “It was not easy to come here, but I am trying to follow Gospa’s messages that touched me in my heart, moved me to the conversion and keep inspiring me to change myself and to renew and fix my spiritual life. I feel that Gospa’s message is so strong and many things in our country and in our community happen through Gospa’s prayer and intercession. Our Lady of Medjugorje is famous in Paraguay, the only problem is that it is expensive for us to come here, but people follow these events and messages on web sites and facebook as well, usually in Spanish language and are related to Paraguay, so through those sites, we receive all information from Medjugorje.”
