The rite of reception and promises of the members of the Frama

The ceremony took place on February 13th in the parish of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Tolisa, where the Rite of Reception and Promises of the Members of the Franciscan Youth was performed during the Holy Mass.

The solemn Eucharist, with the concelebration of the Guardian OFM Mario Jurić and the spiritual leader of the Tolisa's Frama, OFM Darijo Matanović, was led by parish vicar in Kiseljak and deputy of provincial spiritual assistant of OFS Bosna Srebrena, OFM Silvio Zlatarević.

The members of the Franciscan Youth of the parish of Tolisa, 18 of them, renewed their vows, and a ceremony of receiving four new members was organized.

In his homily, OFM Silvio encouraged the faithful to think of eternal things, not material things. He especially addressed the young Frama members, who remain in their homeland and try to be a light in the parish community, and encouraged them to persevere.

In the end, OFM Mario congratulated the Frama members, expressing the hope that some of them would embark on the path of spiritual vocation.

By the way, Frama has been active in the parish of Tolisa since 1995 and was among the first, along with the parish of Vitez, to be founded in the Vrhbosna Archdiocese.
