Web site, the official web site of seminarians of Herzegovinian Franciscan Province, published the interview with Fr. Ante Vuckovic, a priest, a theologian and a philosopher. Fr. Ante among other things spoke about his experience of Medjugorje and the 25th Youth Festival. Every day, through the lectures, he was teaching young people  how to pray, how to participate in the community and in their work by entrusting themselves to the Blessed Mother, inviting them just like Jesus invited St. John when he said "Behold your Mother". He said:"The Youth Festival was precious experience of encounters with young people who are led by their longing for God, prayer, communion in the spirit of God.  I did not hide how thrilled I was. Even more, I felt so happy that I was able to be part of that event. After the whole-day prayer programme, young people wanted more and more. They had huge hunger for God and for praising Him. One can only guess how they live in spiritual deserts, I had impression that they came from places that suffocate their spiritual hunger and try to overload it with various replacements, so they all opened more in Medjugorje and rejoiced to the freedom and love towards God. The fact that I was able to witness all that was huge gift for me. I am grateful for having been able to proclaim the word of God to them and to see thousands of them responding to that. I never had bigger and more attentive community of faithful before me at any other place. The view from the altar at thousands of young faithful praising God is absolutely unforgettable", said Fr. Ante.
