Dear Fellow Pilgrim,

We are living in an incredibly special time in history!  Much pain and suffering is all around us but also an Ocean of Grace has been given us, a Bridge to Heaven!

Since June 24, 1981, the Blessed Virgin Mary has been reported to visit daily with several young adults in Herzegovina, bringing messages on how to achieve peace in our hearts, home, and the world.

In 1986, the Holy Father said, “Let the people go to Medjugorje if they convert, pray, confess, do penance, and fast.”  Some 15 million laity and clergy have visited and returned home spiritually renewed.  You, too, are invited!

In the documents of Vatican II, we read, “Mary advanced on Her Pilgrimage of faith and faithfully persevered in Her union with Her Son unto the Cross.”  (Lumen Gentium)  This sentence makes us realize that Mary, like ourselves, walked in faith.  She is, as Pope John Paul II described Her, a Pilgrim of love.  Mary shows us, by Her example, what it means to be a pilgrim and stranger on this earth, ever longing for the final destination of our Pilgrimage:  the new and eternal Jerusalem.

On Her pilgrimage, Mary chose to walk in the footsteps of the great faith-filled figures of the Old Testament.  On our Pilgrimage to Medjugorje, let us ask Mary, Our Blessed Mother, and Our Lady of Medjugorje, to be Our Guide!  Let us put our hand in Her hands and walk in Her Footsteps on Holy Ground in Medjugorje.  Let us pick up our cross and walk with Our Lady, for Her only desire is to truly bring us to Her Son, Jesus, the Source of Life itself and all our blessings.

It is indeed a privilege and honor for us to once again make a pilgrimage to Our Heavenly Mother in Medjugorje.  As Her little children we so need Her Love and Embrace and place all our needs and those dear to us in Her Immaculate Heart.  Our great hope is that you will join us and we will become a family ever united to Jesus through Mary, Queen of Peace and Mother of all God’s children.

May the Lord bless you! We so hope you can join us on this most special pilgrimage with Jesus and Mary.

With love and great hope,


Cathy Howe

kathy_jimIn Thanksgiving for my physical healing in Medjugorje on October 5, 2007; but most of all for my spiritual healing through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary; I am privileged to share this prayer with you.

Catherine Mary Howe

Prayer to the Blessed Virgin:
(Never Known to Fail) Oh, most beautiful flower of Mt. Carmel, fruitful vine, splendor of Heaven. Blessed Mother of the Son of God. Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. Oh, Star of the Sea, help me and show me, herein you are my Mother. Oh, Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth! I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succor me in this necessity. There are none that can withstand your power. Oh, show me herein, you are my Mother. Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse in thee (3x). Holy Mother, I place this cause in your hands (3x). Say this prayer 3 consecutive days. After 3 days the request will be granted. This prayer must be published after favor is granted. CMH


To the Venerable Father F. Cyril OCD

O Infant Jesus, I have recourse to You and ask You through the intercession of Your Holy Mother to help me in my need, ( mention it here ) for I firmly believe that Your Divinity can help me.

I hope, in complete trust, to obtain Your holy grace. I love You with all my heart and with all the strength of my soul. I am truly sorry for all my sins, and beg You, O good Jesus, to give me strength to conquer them. I shall never offend You and I am ready to suffer rather than to cause You pain.

From now on I want to serve with complete faithfulness and for love of You, O Divine Child, I will love my neighbour as well as myself. Omnipotent Child , Lord Jesus, again I implore You, help me in this need of mine ( mention it ).

Grant me the grace of possessing You eternally, with Mary and Joseph and of adoring You with the holy angels in Your heavenly court.
