I can’t say how beautiful joining the pilgrimage, very unforgettable experience, people are very helpfully and nice to talk to everybody.  Hotel staff are all so lovely, food serve are good and giving us a good smile.  If God willing I’ll be back again, I love the place and have a time to be in the Church to pray.  Thanks for the organization who made this pilgrimage beautiful and homely.  God bless us.  Thanks the most Mama Virgin Mary. (Love Z.B.).

It was an honor and a great pleasure to be here in Medjugorje.  Wish my daughter and grandchildren were here to share this experience.  Definitely coming back again – God willing.  Food, staff, hotel and service was great.  God Bless and thanks for everything.  (Monica).

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to join your pilgrimage.  I’d been to many pilgrimage, but this my first time to be here in Medjugorje that I can’t explained my feelings.  I know I got lots of blessings that I going to bring it to my place in Kent.  It’s so lovely from all religious activities down to the hotel, food … more power!  God bless you all!  I found my God again.

This has been my first visit to Medjugorje, but I hope it will not be the last.  So many special moments : Vicka, Adoration and the Station of Cross Mountain to name just free Thank you for looking after all three of us. (Julie)

Medjugorje lifted me up spiritually.  Love to come back again.  The staff both the hotel and guide are very nice with us did a terrific job.  I thank the organiser too.  (Pilgrim)

Oh Lord to be held in Our Mother’s embrace – time is too short in this beautiful place, I don’t want to leave, haven’t had my fill – and need so much more of your infinite grace.  Thank you for another wonderful pilgrimage. (Anon)

My most moving experience of my week in Medjugorje, was my visit to Cenaculo to hear the testimonies of two young men.  Their conversion from drugs and video games addiction and even their struggle with the catholic faith was heart rending.  When their began to experience the peace and love of God they found real souls and gained holy confidence. (Anon)

This is my first trip to Medjugorje.  After a few days, I felt I hadn’t achieved anything due to not feeling any grand sensations or witnessing any miracles.  But towards the end of the pilgrimage, I began to realize that being around fellow Catholics, praying and talking, hearing different stories and experiences, I felt more enthusiastic and passionate about my faith, which were feelings I had lost some time ago.  I’m happy I came and look forward to going home and please God practicing my faith a lot better.  I would love to return to Medjugorje.
