Medjagorje- a new opportunity

Arrived in #medjagorje last night via the beautiful city of #dobrovnic and the coast.
I’m not sure how I feel about the trip, but after 26h of travel to get here, maybe I should be gentle.
This morning we prayed the stations of the cross up and down the apparition hill. The artwork is amazing, but more special are the rocks- jagged edges worn white by 30 years of Pilgrimage.
I suppose #pilgrimage is not so much about place but person. Me, others and the Lord and his mother. I can handle myself as I get older. Even the Lord and his mom too. But maybe the Other is my challenge.
Salt-skinned, it is lunch & Siesta time.
