Marinko Šušak, man from Siroki Brijeg in Herzegovina who lives in Zagreb and his friend Dragutin Bosak from Krapina left Zagreb on Sunday, June 9 after celebration of Holy Mass in Cathedral of Zagreb and blessing at the grave of Bl. Alojzije Stepinac, and began their pilgrimage to the Mother of God in Medjugorje. Motto of their pilgrimage was: “Salvation is in the Cross!”
They carried huge cross and Croatian national flag and arrived to Medjugorje on the eve of the apparitions, June 24, 2013. Two friends, one from Herzegovina and the other from Zagorje, have filled their pilgrimage with prayer of Rosaries for convicted Croatian soldiers in Haag, for all forgotten and deprived soldiers of Croatian Army as well as for their families. They have blessed their cross one month ago at the place of martyrdom of burnt and killed Herzegovinian Franciscans in Siroki Brijeg. After this pilgrimage, the cross will be given to the Board for Beatification of Martyrs to be kept and protected in the memory of their Way of the Cross that they took for their Homeland and Croatian people.
