Celebrated patron of the monastery Egipat


On the day when the Church commemorates the Innocent Children, December 28th, the patron saint was solemnly celebrated in the Convent of the Servants of the Little Jesus of the Sarajevo Province of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Stadler’s Children’s home Egipat.

The Holy Mass in the chapel was led by the Archbishop Coadjutor of Vrhbosna Tomo Vukšić, concelebrating with the Charge d'Affaires of the Apostolic Nunciature, Msgr. Amaury Median Blanc and two priests.

In his homily, the Archbishop pointed out that the memorial of the Innocent Children “opens many questions in this time of living, especially the question of evil present in the world”. “The evil of not accepting and rejecting God from life is a very dangerous and perfidious way of driving God out of the heart. Personal belief, witness and proclamation are three important personalities of a Christian, helping him to conform to Christ”, said the Archbishop Coadjutor and encouraged present to carry the faith they live as their belief and show it every day in word and deed.

Liturgical singing was animated by the sisters under the direction of Maestro rev. Marko Stanušić.

Together with the archbishop, priests and sisters from Vitez, the archdiocese, the nunciature, the seminary and Gromiljak, the celebration continued in the sister’s dining room with songs and socializing around the family table.
