The sixth Lenten reflection: Fr. Ante Vučković, OFM speaks about the Word of God

After the reflections given by Fr. Marinko Šakota and Fr. Stanko Mabić, Fr. Ante Vuckovic will present us the sixth Lenten reflection. The theme is the Word of God. Fra. Ante said that ‘’countless people have changed their way of life in the encounter with the Word of God and in those moments, sometimes it takes only one word. It is sufficient for me to understand that this word was meant for me and the change takes place immediately’’. St. Anthony the Hermit and St. Augustine are just some whose lives were changed by one word they heard.

The visionary Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo had daily apparitions from June 24th 1981 to December 25th 1982. During the last daily apparition, Our Lady gave her the 10th secret, and told her that she would appear to her once a year, on the 18th of March.  It has been this way through the years.

''Dear children
In a motherly way I am calling you to return to the joy and the truth of the Gospel, to return to the love of my Son – because He is waiting for you with open arms; that everything you do in life you do with my Son, with love; that it may be blessed for you; so that your spirituality may be internal, and not just external.

Only in that way will you be humble, generous, filled with love and joyful; and my motherly heart will rejoice with you. Thank you.''
