On Monday, July 1st, sisters Adorers of the Blood of Christ, celebrated their patron, on which occasion there was a solemn Mass celebration led by cardinal Vinko Puljić.

At the beginning of the Holy Mass, cardinal Puljić greeted all those present, and also congratulated the patron to the sisters.

He gave a few inspirational thoughts during the sermon, emphasizing the importance of blood in the human understanding of the blood relation, and the divine understanding of the covenant. “Blood is not just a symbol; it is the reality that always points us to the sacrifice of Christ that he has redeemed us. By today's glorification of the Precious Blood of Christ, we need to overcome the human dimension and enter into the value that Jesus has given us through his blood-redeemed man. With this value, we will communicate more easily with people”, the Archbishop of Vrhbosna said.

By St. Mary De Mattias, with the charisma of going to the farthest souls that needed the living Word and effective love. They go to all people, living a simple and hospitable lifestyle, walking in the ways of reconciliation and solidarity.
