The Beginnings

Medugorje Fasting Bread

I was still in elementary school when my mom made her first trek to Medjugorge.  She had recently been converted to Catholicism and was invited by her sponsor to join the pilgrimage to eastern Europe.  It was a place of reported apparitions and deep, unshakable faith.  And it must have been every bit as magical as she hoped because she's been praying ALL the rosaries ever since.
