New book of Fr. Ante Vuckovic”Behold, your Mother”, was presented on Saturday, July 9, 2016 in the beautiful atmosphere of cloister of the Franciscan monastery of St. Anthony in Poljud, Split, Croatia. At the same time promotion and presentation and donation night for the project of volunteers “72 hours without compromises” took place.
Fr. Ante’s book “Behold, your Mother” is actually book of catecheses held at the Youth Festival two years ago in Medjugorje. Medjugorje parish priest, Fr. Marinko Sakota said that Fr. Ante gave a special dimension to those catecheses.
Pero Mihaljević, the coordinator of the project „72 hours without compromises”, presented this whole project and invited all gathered to support this idea. Several young people: Ana-Marija Vrdoljak, Duje Drnas and Tomislav Debeljak, shared their experiences about volunteering in between presentation of Fr. Ante’s book. Their stories made all gathered laugh, but also moved them to the tears.
It was the night of mutual self-giving. The young people gave their experiences and all gathered collected money to support this project, while Fr. Ante with this book gave a little part of himself. Fr. Ante concluded the night with that thought, that none of this would have happened unless God gave Himself to us all the time. The organisers of this event were “72 hours without compromises”, Skac Split and Information Centre Mir Medjugorje. (photos)
