Having read this please read comment of author Mary McCafferty at bottom of post
Mary McCafferty grew up in a devout Irish Catholic family, the eighth of 10 children. "My parents' back yard backed up against the Queen of Peace Catholic Church (in Ardsley)," said McCafferty, 53, who has resided in Manheim Township for 19 years. "We went to Mass every single Sunday." But as a young wife and mother, McCafferty drifted away from church. "I always knew there was a God. But God was in my head, not my heart." Her journey back to church and God began in 1987. McCafferty and her husband, Joe, and two children were living in Mount Holly, N.J., where a good friend from parochial school and her husband stopped by.
McCafferty knew the couple had just returned from a trip to Europe. What she didn't know was that when she asked about the trip — which included a stop at Yugoslavia's Medjugorje, a Catholic pilgrimage site — her life would change forever. "I received the gift of grace that day," she said. Twenty-five years later, a simple question — "How was the trip?" — has evolved into "Born Again … in Medjugorje," a self-published memoir by McCafferty released in June through Createspace, a division of Amazon.
