Christian Association Kup Karmel has organised on November 17th and 18th pilgrimage of about hundred poor and homeless people from Zagreb and few other towns from Croatia to Medjugorje and to the Queen of Peace. During their time in Medjugorj they visited Apparition Hill, they were present at the prayer and liturgical programme in the parish church of St. James, and they visited Mother’s Village. The ones that accompanied this group on their pilgrimage, Fr. Vlado Rukavina, Fr. Mato Anic and Dusko Radakovic, were guests at the Radio Station Mir Medjugorje. Fr. Vlado said how the participants were happy to have been given a chance to come to Medjugorje, to feel warmness and peace of Medjugorje. One thing you can learn from working with them and for them is simplicity, indirectness, authentic life, there are no masks there, he said. It is nice to share those expectations and to be part of that. There are spiritual fruits, said Fr. Mato about the experience of spiritually following poor and homeless. Christian Association Kup Karmel has organised last year the unusual pilgrimage of motorcycles, and for couple of years they have been organisers of Marathon of Peace.
