The 2nd European Congress of OFS and YouFra completed
The 2nd European Congress of OFS and YouFra was completed on Sunday, August 23, with the Holy Mass celebrated by Fr. Milienko Steko, the Provincial of Herzegovina Franciscan Province, in the Franciscan church of Sts. Peter and Paul. The theme of the congress was „Be worthy of the calling you received" from St. Paul′s letter to Ephesians, and around hundred participants along with their spiritual assistants were discussing for one week the identity of secular franciscans, life in the family and care for all creation, along with prayers and Holy Eucharist as the source of strength for living the calling of the secular franciscan.
Along with the lectures, group work, projects and presentations, the participants had opportunity to visit Sarajevo and Medjugorje. During their visit to Medjugorje at the radio station „Mir" Međugorje the guest were General Minister of OFS Tibor Kauser and general spiritual assistant Fr. Amando Trujillo-Cano. This is Fr. Amando′s second visit to Međugorje: „We know that here we have Mary, Mother of God. We wanted to gather here and to pray for her intercession. We heard about many conversions and we wanted to experience all that, to feel the prayer in various languages and to fly to our Mother", said Fr. Amando. Lithuania will host the 3rd European Congress of OFS and YouFra.
