cross Mountain

Of this mountain, Our Lady said to the multitude of 30,000 to 50,000 pilgrims who had climbed it on June 24, 1986, for the anniversary:

You are on a Tabor. You receive blessings, strength, and love. Carry them into your families and into your homes.”

It is always a moving experience to climb this mountain where Our Lady has appeared many times.

  • The lowest fares for a full-hosted pilgrimage, yet the best spiritual pilgrimage package available! Check for yourself, but get the final full price and compare and you will see no one goes to Medjugorje cheaper. The surprise is BVM Caritas’ pilgrimages are “high quality pilgrimages.”

  • You stay in the middle of the village by St. James Church, yet on the trail to Apparition Mountain, *a best location*. On top of that, pilgrimages are scheduled around special apparitions, such as being in the village when the second of the month message is given and other special times for apparitions.

    • Members of the Community of Caritas live and work as missionaries in Medjugorje. Through the experience of our founder, a Friend of Medjugorje, we are given an in-depth, behind-the-scenes understanding of Medjugorje that we convey to you.

    • Caritas does everything possible to have their pilgrims be in an apparition with Our Lady. Keep in mind that there are only three visionaries who see Our Lady everyday, and there are times none of the visionaries are in the village. However, Our Lady has said She will always be in Medjugorje, even after the apparitions end “...My eyes and my heart will be here, even when I will no longer appear...March 18, 1996. Grace is always available for those who come seeking an encounter with Our Lady.

    • Special sites are prayed at, shown and explained, such as the site where Jakov and Vicka were bodily/physically taken to Heaven from earth by Our Lady holding their hands.

    • The only interest we have is spiritual profit. None of us are paid to guide you. We do it in response to Our Lady’s message in which She requested to “… sacrifice your lives for the salvation of the world…” February 25,1988
