Pilgrimages are Popular

Yearly, thousands travel to Guadalupe, Mexico, to Lourdes, France, and to Fatima, Portugal. New places of pilgrimage are developing wherever Catholic life exists. Older places are experiencing renewal. One example took place this year on Aug. 15, 1995, in Germany when approximately 15,000 gathered at the Swabian pilgrimage center, Maria Vesperbild, to celebrate the Assumption and to listen to Archbishop Pero Sudar of Sarajevo. Sudar spoke of the death and hunger that prevails in the war.

"Where death reigns, it is hard to believe in life; ... hard, too, not to lose faith in God." The people of Sarajevo want to live. It is their wish to be able to live together with those whom God in his providence has led together. [Source: IDU, 33 (16.8.1995):4]
