date: 07.10.2015.

Many pilgrims are still in Medjugorje and according to the Information Office statistics, groups from Poland, Italy, Belgium, Korea, Hungary, Spain, India, Slovenia, France, England, Ireland, Canada, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands, Ukraine and Tahiti, were in Medjugorje on Wednesday, October 7. Keith is 27 years old and she came from Ireland. She came here for the first time when she was 6 years old and said: „I grew up in a catholic family with wonderful parents, but when I was between 16 and 18 years of age, I got astray in some things and I started to go away from God and my faith. I thought my problems were too big and that He cannot help me. I was not able to handle my difficulties at all. My family and people that knew me, were aware of what was going on in my life. I can say that prayers of my parents brought me back to the church, to my final surrender to Jesus and to my 'yes' to Him. When I did that, my life began to change. It was very hard in the beginning as I used to still suffer because of my problems. Two years ago,I felt I should visit some holy place where I would feel as if I was at home. I felt great desire to come to Medjugorje. I heard about Medjugorje when I was a child, and when I returned to my faith, I started going to Holy Mass again. The first thing I wanted to do was to confess and Medjugorje was in my heart. The main message of Medjugorje and of Our Lady is prayer." (photos)
