Arrived by bicycles from Germany for the 26th Youth Festival
Two pilgrims from Germany, Lukas Lorenz and Roland Kiechle arrived by bicycles to Medjugorje two days before the beginning of the Youth Festival. They began their journey in the mid July and they travelled for 1820 km all the way from Munich. They told us they were proud of what they did and very grateful to the Queen of Peace for all of the graces they received and for the opportunity to participate in the Youth Festival: „We are especially gladly anticipating the evening prayer programme and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and the confessions.
Lucas said that he came to Medjugorje 15 years ago for the first time and many good memories are related to that pilgrimage: „I gladly accepted this pilgrimage as this is the opportunity to give thanks to God for my experience of conversion, prayer and life with Him, all graces I received at the Youth Festival. There were difficult moments, but our goal was to come here for this event and we made it. " Lucas and Roland spoke also about the youth movements that exist in Germany and were inspired by Medjugorje: „There are really strong movements connected to Medjugorje in Germany. We have many people who pray and live with us and we always return to Medjugorje. We bring all graces we receive here back to our homes and those graces influence our spirituality a lot. "
