I have been twice and have learned so much about God's mercy and the very powerful need for forgiveness.
I have been following Medjugorje for many years and feel so strong towards it but Blessed Mother tells us to live it and not to "worry" so much as to what is to happen. I know her visits are real and for us to convert to prayer and peace.
So when I came across the retreat center in Shallowater I felt God's call for me to go there. --and WOW what a conversion and leap of faith. Nothing new maybe for some, but now that I see that we all have such unforgiveness in our past and pray to God I have forgiven each and every person that touched my life. I feel like I am really truely now a part of Christ and the faith is so much clearer and stronger. I had repented and been to confession but never closed the door for the forgiveness.
If you feel that God puts it in your heart to go please don't hesitate because it is a powerful place for mercy and forgiveness. --and maybe there is a retreat center near you like it that you can go.
Remember the messages of Medjugorje are about pray pray pray and to fast for peace and coversion so we can all see the glory of God.
