Youth from Croatia about the Youth Festival in Medjugorje

date: 04.08.2017.

Sr. Irena Jozić from Varaždin, member of the order of Ursuline sisters came for the 28th Youth Festival. This is what she said about her impressions:

„I am glad I was able to be here a bit and to participate at the programme that is so rich and spiritually full of joy, communion and warmth. This helps us to be fed spiritually and to be strengthened for all challenges in our lives, so we could imitate Gospa in our serving. I am glad so many young people are here, a group of youth from Bosnia and Heregovina is with me. We are not a big group, there are some from Croatia, and a boy from Vienna. We have a priest with us who is from Bosnia but serves in Diocese of Rotterdam. Each part has its importance and its value. Holy Masses are particularly powerful as well as the Eucharistic Adorations.“ 

Ilija Barić from Virovitica arrived here on his bicycle along with five other young people. „This is my fifth or sixth time to be here and it is so beautiful. This is a place of prayer and peace, for me confessions are really powerful here. I come often here with my parish in February and that is when it is also nice to be here “, said Ilija.
