Among many pilgrims, we had opportunity to talk to Marija Tomic, Medjugorje pilgrim from Otok close to Sinj, who lives for the last 35 years in Melbourne, Australia. She came to Medjugorje on a pilgrimage from September 15-25. She came to Medjugorje for the first time in 1995, with her friend, and has come here for more than 15 times. She said that up to that point, her faith was not so good in the practical life, and after she did Novena in Medjugorje, climbed Apparition Hill each day as well as Cross Mountain, she obtained many graces and her daughter got pregnant after nine years as well.
„I really feel good here in Medjugorje, I do not want to leave this place and each time I had to return home, I want to cry”, said Marija in the programme of radio „Mir” Međugorje, station that she has been supporting since 2009.
