Experiences of pilgrims

date: 15.10.2012.

The journalists of Radio Station Mir Medjugorje met Elio Karlovic and Slavko Files among many pilgrims who are coming from Croatia to Medjugorje during October. Elio is the founder of prayer community “The Queen of Peace” from Pula and two of them shared their experience of Medjugorje with us. Elio was encouraged with all of the other prayer groups that existed throughout the world and inspired by the spirit and the example of Medjugorje, Elio decided to organise the meeting of priests and pilgrims from Pula who were coming to Medjugorje. One of the very important fruits was the prayer community “The Queen of Peace”. This community gathers every last Thursday in the month and they participate in the regular evening prayer programme of Medjugorje: Rosary, Holy Mass and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Slavko came to Medjugorje three years ago for the first time. He comes from the County of Medjimurje, parish of Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, close to Cakovac, town at the north of Croatia. He works in Pula for the time being and there he met people who invited him to come to Medjugorje. “We are thrilled with peace that is not very common in other places. When one prays, he can surrender to other feelings that are different to those that prevail in the regular life. That is really relief for us. All of the problems are left aside and we only focus on prayer and pilgrimage”, said Slavko.
