The pilgrims, with their face filled with joy and truly happy to find peace, expressed the desire to return to Medjugorje to relive the joyful experience that springs from being together in prayer in the presence of Mary.

The Queen of Peace has given me the gift of going home with my heart opened to God full of love and grace. “
As the days passed, the Lametid faithful experienced experiences of an indescribable inner beauty in the phases of their peregrination when, for example, they went up to Podbrdo, Mount of Apparitions, reciting and meditating on the Holy Rosary and where, according to the testimonies, it appeared For the first time the Madonna on June 24, 1981.
Moments of equally intense serenity and faith were those experienced by the faithful during the engaging Eucharistic adoration, climbing on the crash of Krizevac, Mount of the Cross, meditating on the stations of Via Crucis or those visiting the sanctuary of Tihaljna, which became the center of Christian spirituality . “So many are the difficult and often painful situations that cross the lives of life. Here I have learned to pray and I find that it is in prayer – emphasized Leila of Lamezia Terme – that we all perceive the presence of Mary who with her sweetness of Mother never tastes to console, to embrace and to stand beside her children Who are in suffering and give each one a great inner peace. ”
The pastor of the Carmine of Lamezia Terme Don Pino Latelli points out that ” there is nothing to be seen in Medjugorje but there is only to feel and to live. The faithful, through the approach to God’s word, to the sacraments, especially to the sacrament of Reconciliation, touched the merciful love of the Father and revived the light of faith by rediscovering the beauty of prayer, especially of the holy Rosary. “
