(E) Reflecting on Croatia - Papal Insights


Croatiawill always have a special place in my heart and in my prayer

                                                                           - Pope John Paul II -

" Pope John Paul II's remarks in English at his weekly general audience June 11:

Today I would like to speak briefly about my recent pilgrimage to Croatia, the theme of which was "The Family: the Way of the Church and of People." This was my 100th apostolic visit, and i give heartfelt thanks to Almighty God for opening to me once more the roads of the world so that i could bear witness to Him among the nations. 
During this pilgrimage, my third to Croatia, I had the joy of beatifying Sister Marija Propetoga Isusa Petkovic(Sister Maria Petkovic) in her noble homeland. I also encouraged women to make their unique spiritual and moral contribution to society, and reminded all the Lord's disciples that everyone is called to holiness. On Pentecost Sunday, I invoked a renewed outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon Christian families in Croatia and throughout the world. 
May God continue to bless and protect Croatia; this country will always have a special place in my heart and in my prayer. "
