Nicholas Sonntag from Germany walked to Medjugorje and arrived on Wednesday, August 8, 2012. This is his first trip to Medjugorje, but he promised it would not be the last. He heard about Medjugorje from members of a community who come to Medjugorje every year. “Last year I walked to Rome and on the way to Rome I felt desire to come to Medjugorje. Many years ago I had a life crisis and I read various books about life. I happened to read a book about pilgrimage and how I could find my way to God through pilgrimage.” Nicholas started his pilgrimage on July 9, 2012 and biggest problem for him was this big heat. He thanked everyone for their hospitality, especially to people in Croatia. He came here to thank Our Lady for many graces. “I have so much to thank for, I am deeply moved by everything, it is really beautiful here”, said Nicholas who will stay in Medjugorje for few days.
