» Hrvojka Mihanovic-Salopek: Veneration of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Diocese of Gospić-Senj
We often travel to the Adriatic coast through the spacious, desolate, forested and mountainous expanses of Lika, without being aware that there used to be a highly developed center of medieval Croatian culture and Glagolitic scriptoria. Although the brutal Ottoman invasions wrought devastation, we are attracted to the residual traces of the original old Croatian civilization. This is Hrvojka Mihanovic-Salopek's 11th DVD from the series Stella Maris of Croatia (Croatian Mariological heritage).

» Ana Bedrina predlaže 12. svibnja za Dan hrvatskih iseljenika i zaštitnika sv. Leopolda
By Nenad N. Bach and Darko Žubrinić | Published 04/16/2019 | Education | Unrated

I pored svog raseljenog naroda po cijelome svijetu, Hrvatska do sada nije ustanovila Dan hrvatskih iseljenika. Kao katolička zemlja koja ima sv. Josipa za zaštitnika države, mi nemamo zaštitnika za brojno iseljeništvo. Iako bi ga mogli imati, jer imamo brojne uzorne ljude i svece, ali još nije postavljen.samo jedan od njih je u svojoj službi bio pravi iseljenik i s nostalgijom mislio na svoj povratak kući, među svoj narod, pa makar i poslije smrti (citat: "kad bi bar kosti moje mogle počivati na mojoj rodnoj grudi"€œ). I koji je pokazao svoje domoljublje i vjernost domovini kad je žrtvovao svoju slobodu, odbivši talijansko državljanstvo, jer se nije htio odreći svoga hrvatskog državljanstva rekavši da "krv nije voda".
