About a hundred and twenty people , parents ,friends of the Community and youth, guided by Father Massimo spent three intense days’ pilgrimage to Our Lady ;we met the Community and were welcomed by the boys and girls of the Cenacolo.
Mother Elvira embraced each of us ,one by one at the start of the new year, making us feel children loved and waited for in our Community, where many of our children are on their way to resurrection.
We listened to testimonies at the “Camp of Joy” where we were told about the adventurous start of the girls’ house, about the bricks that, one after the other formed a building and meanwhile the hearts of the boys who worked at it were reconstructed because working there they experienced clean and true joy.
Then we went up the apparition mountain, the Podbrdo, a strong moment for all of us: for those who were going up for the first time, for those who had climbed it many times; each of us left a thought, a prayer ,a request, some tears before Our Lady.
The boys told us about the beginning of the “Camp of Life”, when the few of them lived in tents and moved the first steps of the great miracle that would occur in that Camp where thousands of pilgrims come today and are amazed and moved by the stories of the daily resurrection of our children.
The tables full of food and cakes prepared for us by our youth surprised us and made us understand what great attention and care those boys and girls can have: young people we considered insensitive ,inattentive, intolerant when they lived in the world outside have become alive, smiling; they are themselves amazed by the deep change that the Gospa can perform in their hearts in Medjugorje.
Those days were really intense and we feel deeply grateful to God for all that He performs in our youth; we are sure that their resurrection is also our resurrection, that they are healed and we are too thanks to this meeting with Life.
