Many pilgrims from all over the world arrived to the parish of Medjugorje, for the Feast of the Annunciation, March 25th, 2011. There were many pilgrims from Croatia, Italy, Germany, the United States, Romania, the Czech Republic, Mexico, Poland, Slovenia, Puerto Rico and Argentina. Eleven Holy Masses were celebrated during the day in both, the Chapel of Adoration and the Church of St. James. Three of those were in Croatian - at 8 a.m., 11 a.m., and 6 p.m. We also had the whole-night Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m., as we always have every 25th in the month, in thanksgiving to Our Lady for Her messages.
During the Lent, in a particular way, we meditate on Christ’s passion and death, praying the devotion of the Way of the Cross on Fridays at Cross Mountain at 2 p.m. and after evening Holy Mass at 7 p.m. This devotion is also on Sundays before the main Croatian morning Holy Mass, at 10.30 a.m., and after the evening Holy Mass at 7 p.m.
