In the studio of Radio Mir Medjugorje they interviewed the apostolic guest, Mons Aldo Cavalli, and the president of the board of directors of the Mir Medjugorje Information Center, brother Danko Perutina. Friar Danko was recently in the United States with his companions. They participated in the Bilingual Conference “Mary, Queen of Peace”. Where the recently inaugurated Mir Medjugorje Center for English speaking countries is presented.
The message of peace from Medjugorje has spread to all corners of the world, so pilgrims from the United States also want to be connected and familiar with the events there. We share part of the interview with you.
“There are three centers now officially open to the world, established by the Mir Medjugorje Information Center and the Medjugorje parish office. One of them is the center for German-speaking countries, for Germany, Austria, Switzerland… 12 years ago, the center of Spanish-speaking countries was also created, which covers 23 countries, and this third center for English-speaking countries. The speech was established on June 25 of this year. The directors of this all centers attended this bilingual conference.”
“My impression is that people, not only in the United States, but everywhere, are thirsty for God. Every person, even atheists, thirsts and hungers for the meaning of life. Every man wants to be happy. For us Catholics it is easier and heaven grants us that, through the apparitions of the Virgin, we can approach the Lord more easily. The conclusion of all pilgrims is that they feel better, that they feel different, that they make decisions to change their whole lives. No one leaves Medjugorje without changing,” said Brother Danko Perutina.
The apostolic visitor with special character for the parish of Medjugorje, Archbishop Aldo Cavalli, added: “The whole revelation is based on two important things: on the one hand, God and on the other man. Between God and people, God has placed special people who bring God to people and people to God. Evangelism means that between God and all people there is the Gospel and the Lord Jesus. He is the God of peace, between God and people and vice versa. The new evangelization means that, in the Lord Jesus, I put myself between God and people. I bring the Gospel to the people, and I bring the people to the Gospel and to God. Only in this way can I do and participate in evangelization, so that it is deeply rooted in the Lord Jesus and in the world today. All who were able to do that were evangelizing. The center of Medjugorje is the Lord Jesus and Mary who accompany us to Jesus. Hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world were filled with the Lord Jesus. When they returned home, they returned full of Jesus, full of the Gospel… They lived like others, but because they were Christians they brought the Gospel to the world. In this Medjugorje there is a great task, it has a great mission, so that the people who stay there for three, four or five days are filled with the grace of Jesus and return to their environment, which is the environment where we all live. , but they returned to those environments as true Christians,” said Bishop Aldo Cavalli, calling Medjugorje “a place of grace.”
