Easter message of the Provincial of the Franciscan Province of Herzegovina, Fr. Miljenko Šteko

Under the rays of the Easter sun, Jesus, together with His own, breaks our burdensome tombstones and introduces us to a new life.  He breaks what is weak and tired in our life, what is stuck in it, what is in it without life and love.  He breaks the tombstones of our loneliness and guilt and introduces us into the breadth of his Easter love.

In the spirit of this and such love of Christ and His immeasurable mercy, I wish all of us a happy and saving Easter!

“And from this place of grace we return able to maintain the view that Mary brings us back to Jesus here.  Let us return to our homes with this task: here I have learned to see the sign.  I saw Jesus through Mary’s eyes because my eyes were unclean. My mind was wounded.  My heart was heavy, but with Mary I jumped towards God”.
