Walk to Divine Mercy Shrine

To Jesus through Mary Camino

It is quite common for Our Lady in Medjugorje to end her messages to the visionaries with the statement “Thank you responding to my call”.  Now the Mother of God is speaking directly to you. However you made the decision, Our Blessed Mother invites you to walk to Her Son’s Shrine in the Lower Chittering Valley, Western Australia. There, the Lamb of God awaits to greet you.

Walk to Jesus through Mary – What’s it all about?

In the aftermath of being bitten by a poisonous spider, Marisana Arambasic became extremely ill and underwent serious medical treatment. Despite her excruciating pain, she grabbed her Rosary and started to pray. The moment her parents heard how ill their daughter was, they decided to go to Medjugorje to pray to Our Lady for healing; this is where a miracle occurred.

Marisana realised how important prayer and sacrifice are in our journey to our eternal home after her life was forever changed. She received inspiration from the Peace Walk, which has been taking place in Medjugorje since 1992. So commencing in 2020 pilgrims have been walking every year between Our Lady of the Revelation Shrine and Divine Mercy Shrine on or close to the Feast Day of Our Lady of Medjugorje. This years pilgrimage will happen on June 23rd 2024.

Dear children! Today again I am calling you to prayer and fasting. You know, dear children, that with your help I am able to accomplish everything and force Satan not to be seducing to evil and to remove himself from this place. Dear children, Satan is lurking for each individual. Especially in everyday affairs he wants to spread confusion among each one of you. Therefore, dear children, my call to you is that your day would be only prayer and complete surrender to God. Thank you for having responded to my call. 

The walk this year will be a silent one with as much reflection as possible on the Passion of Our Lord.  A Pilgrim’s ultimate purpose is to deepen their faith, gain a better understanding of Jesus, and encounter God more profoundly. We invite pilgrims who cannot walk to come and join in prayer at Divine Mercy Shrine and spend time in Adoration with Our Lord.

Why Make a Pilgrimage?

A comparison could be made between the Israelites walking through the Desert and the Lord leading them back to the Holy Land. In addition, we have the image of the Holy Family returning to Nazareth after they were exiled in Egypt. The countless times Joseph, Mary, and Jesus walked the 100+ miles between Nazareth and Jerusalem for religious festivals is another example. The many pilgrimages and missions Jesus and the apostles made during his three years in public ministry would in fact have involved walking similar distances. In the days following Jesus’ death, Paul and Barnabas traveled thousands of miles on foot, spreading the Good News throughout Turkey, Greece, and Italy. Likewise, the Apostles and Disciples spread the gospel throughout Europe, Africa, and Asia. We must not forget the most important pilgrimage of all, Our Lord Jesus Christ’s walk up the hill to Calvary.

On this pilgrimage, you will experience a very special unity with the Saints of the Church, the Old Testament patriarchs, and the Holy Family. In making this intentional journey, it is easy to focus on the physical, but it is even more important to focus on the inner journey towards heaven and Christ’s love for us.
