You have the words of eternal life!"

We are all pilgrims here and we are all in Jesus’ and Mary’s school of love.”Many of those that participated in this retreat have also converted in Medugorje. Married couple Bernard and Sue Elliss from England says that turn point in their lives was conversion in Medugorje.

Some of the participants, inspired with the experience of Medugorje, are leading prayer groups themselves, very often those are the only leaders in famous world cities. Participants at the end took part in a questionnaire and there were many interesting stories.
