Something about the International Youth Festival held in Medjugorje
As Medjugorje grew, the idea of this Festival grew even more. It became the invitation to peace embraced by so many, but it also showed that yung people do notice it is not about some superficial peace, but it is about the peace that God gives to thoe who open their whole hearts to Him. This resounds even today, after many years of continuous prayers. Many decided to follow Christ after this experience in Medjugorje and they embraced the priesthood or religious vocations. The spiritual vocations along with the sacrament of confessions are one of the most beautiful fruits of Medjugorje. Young people love challenges and Christ′s imitation is exactly that – invitation to the radical change and following.
