Holy Mass of the Supper of the Lord was solemnly celebrated on Thursday, March 29 in the parish church in Medjugorje. Fr. Slavko Soldo was the main celebrant in the communion with the parish priest and 28 more priests. Rosary was said before the Holy Mass, led by Fr. Josip Marija Katalinić. The parish choir of the Queen of Peace accompanied the service with their singing.
Fr. Slavko in his homily reminded us that Holy Thursday is the day of the institution of the Eucharist and priesthood and he added: “We are aware there is much evil in this world today. When we bring fruits of our labour at the altar, we are also a bit afraid. The bread we bring at the altar is often full of our sins, as people can curse and blaspheme even when they harvest. Perhaps there is injustice when this is divided and spread, and our everyday bread can be bloody too, since wars are held to gain over someone else’s property. Bread is sometimes full of betrayal, as people can sell souls for a piece of better bread. However, there is no greater remedy for a soul than awareness that all of our evil and wickedness is dying in the Holy Mass with the strength of Christ, so I would be born again and be fed with the Body and Blood of Christ. May our home after Holy Communion be scented with kindness and goodness. Let us be good to one another as Christ is good to us. Let us change ourselves and the world too, so this could become God’s world.” (photos)
