A Day for Mother Mary
Dedicate one Day to Mary with visits to Convent Tihaljina and Franciscan Monastery at Siroki Brijeg ones led by father Jozo Zovko. These 6 hours of the tour will make you thankful and humble knowing the history of our martyrs and Franciscans and its beautiful surrounding with tumble-stoned houses, pine trees, and spring waters.
One angry soldier took the Crucifix and threw it on the floor. He said, “you can now choose either life or death.” Each of the Franciscans knelt down, embraced the Crucifix and said, “You are my God and my All.” The thirty Franciscans were taken out and slaughtered and their bodies burned in a nearby cave where their remains lay for many years.
Today they are buried inside the Franciscan church.
In our Gospel today Jesus said, “if anyone declares himself for me in the presence of men, I will declare myself for him in the presence of my Father in heaven.” The thirty Franciscan martyrs of Široki Brijeg are a powerful example of declaring oneself in the presence of others for Jesus. They lived something else Jesus also said in the Gospel, ‘Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; fear him rather who can destroy both body and soul in hell.’

llegar desde Croacia , para ir a ver a la virgen Maria en medjugorje en Bosnia - Herzegovina , realmente es una experiencia que tienes que vivir.. lo que irradia la virgen no hay forma de vivirlo , salvo que tengas la experiencia de mirarla a los ojos..
paseando por croácia pasas la frontera llegas a la iglesia y volves en cuestión de unas horas....visita imprescindible,
