Carla Nicolini comes from Italy. She works as a teacher and a school principle for many years. She came to Medjugorje for the first time in 1986, but had already forgotten about that experience. The second time she came was in 1999, and ever since then she came for about 30 times to Medjugorje. „That is so great, already in the beginning I was able to see what Medjugorje is and I realised that my desire was to get to know Our Lady more and more. She is so present here. That helped me understand who I am and in 2010, I did consecration of my life. Ever since then, a beautiful, powerful way of joy began, despite all difficulties and crosses that were also present. Medjugorje helped me to learn how to live with the cross and how to be next to the Cross. My life became completely changed. I need to say that the first year of my consecrated life was full of gifts in my parish. One religious community came into our parish, community made of priests who live Marian way of life, who placed the spirituality of Medjugorje in the concrete practice where I live. That was such unusual gift, something we wanted but never thought it was possible. I saw that Our Lady, through their way of life, came to be so close to me. At the same time, Our Lady was preparing another greater gift and that is perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. It was accomplished thanks to the priests who came to live and work in our parish”. - said Carla.
