With the Holy Mass at 9:30 am at the outside altar of the parish church St. James in Medjugorje, lead by Fr Dragan Ruzic, officially ended the second Pilgrimage of people with disabilities called "Live your faith" (MSG July 25,2013)
For the third time this year the parishioners of Medjugorje for free and warm opened the doors of their hearts, homes and restaurants for about 460 pilgrims: people with disabilities, their parents and volunteers.
The organizers of pilgrimages: Association "Susret” from Citluk, Mother's Village and parish Medjugorje, have managed and this time to bring a lot of smiles, gratitude and joy on the faces of all those present. Nice weather helped that all three-day program (from Friday September 20 to Sunday September 22) went great. Pilgrimage consisted of common points in the Mother's Village: Meeting and introducing, a lecture for parents and adults who lead Fr Tomislav Pervan, Holy Mass and Rosary on Friday and Saturday, and points per groups: Prayer on Podbrdo, Cross Mountain for parents and volunteers, music and art therapy for people with disabilities - especially children, and prayer around the Risen for less mobile. Leisure was used for socializing and singing and for the individual visit the evening program in the Church and adoration. Pilgrims were also welcomed by the Municipality of Mayor Ivo Ino Jerkić (on Saturday), and the visionary Vicka Mijatovic (on Sunday before the Mass).
Besides Association Kecharitomena from Italy, most of organizations and communities were from almost the entire Croatia.
The most common was the community "Vjera i svjetlo" from Djakovo , Vinkovci, Vukovar and the entire Croatian. They were the greatest animators of prayer program because they have twenty years of experience working with people with mental disabilities. They found the ways how to make the Mass and prayer more interesting. The songs are simple and accompanied by their facial expressions, the gospel is „revived“and persons with a disability are maximally involved in the celebration. During these days, we have witnessed how you can live faith in serving the least and CELEBRATING LIFE in suffering and disease. It was confirmed what in his opening speech had said Fr Dragan: indeed with this way of life: through suffering and the cross and the joy of discovering Jesus who suffered in every sick brother and sister, at this pilgrimage we prayed twice.
The value of this suffering, this minority is the message that people with disabilities have in today's world that celebrates the greatness and power, and it was most discovered by the volunteers who were day and night with their proteges. It is also a feature of this pilgrimage – that young, „healthy" people, children, families - by serving this "unworthy" people in the eyes of the world, learn a real life lesson in which the most important is HUMILITY AND LOVE!
