The International Meeting of group leaders, leaders of peace centers and prayer and charity groups concluded with Holy Mass

date: 05.03.2016.

On Friday, March 4, the 23rd International Meeting for Group Leaders and Organisers of Pilgrimages, was concluded with the Holy Mass celebrated by Fr. Marinko Sakota, Medjugorje parish priest. This Meeting was held with the theme: „Be as merciful as your Heavenly Father is“ (Lk 6, 36).  Fr. Marinko, the coordinator of this year's seminar, spoke in his homily about our calling: „God wishes us to receive love, so that love is spread through us. God's work is continued through us, very often we remain stuck on the outer appearance and we do not grow. But here in Medjugorje, Gospa is inviting us to grow. Our Lady did not abandon us, she is with us so we would realise that we need to grow.“ This Meeting gathered 290 participants from 25 countries, as well as the members of Guides Association from Medjugorje, and was held from February 29-March 4, 2016. The programme was made of lectures, group work, prayers on Apparition Hill and Cross Mountain and all participants took part in the evening prayer programme in St. James' church. (photos)
