September continues with big number of pilgrims
Ever since the time we started to count the number of given Holy Communions, this August has been above all of the previous number with 326.500 Holy Communions given. Huge numbers of pilgrims from all over the world continued also in the first days of September with groups from Italy, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Greece, Ireland, Lebanon, Germany, Austria, Spain and Belgium.
Each one of those pilgrims carries his own personal experience of Medjugorje. Here , we are bringing the experience of 54 years old priest Francisco Verrara from Panama. He has been coming to Medjugorje for the last 24 years. He is the founder of Radio Maria for Panama, and back in 1994. he built the church that looks like church of St. James from Medjugorje. He said: „We in Panama have prayer groups that are living the spirituality of Medjugorje. For the last seven years we have Adoration oft he Blessed Sacrament for 24 hours. Ever since 1997. we have special community that tries to live messages of Our Lady, Queen of Peace. I see immense fruits of Medjugorje in my country. We have two parishes that are called Maria, Queen of Peace and celebrate their day on June 25th. Medjugorje has become my life. Peace, love and joy that I found here, I was no table to find anywhere else, although I have been to many other shrines. It was in Medjugorje where I lived the happiest days of my life“, says Fr. Francisco.

"... A few weeks later I met a friend of mine called Aidan, who told me about a mutual friend of ours called Louise who had been to Medjugorje and had rediscovered her faith, or as Aidan put it: ‘she has become all religious and holy.’ I was intrigued, because Louise was my own age and from a similar background. So I called around to her and asked her about it. I remember she talked for about an hour and a half about what had happened. At the end of the conversation she invited me to come to a prayer meeting here in Galway. Now I wasn’t that keen to go to a prayer meeting. I thought I was much too cool for such things. But Louise was smart enough to know that and she asked another girl whom I fancied, to ask me. Naturally I went! Both of those girls are now married and I’m a priest!"
