November 24, 2021 Reflection – Fr. Slavko Barbaric

Fr. Slavko Barbaric, OFM   November 24, 2021 Dear Family of Mary! November 25, 2000 “Dear children! Today when Heaven is near to you in a special way, I call you to prayer so that through prayer you place God in the first place. Little children, today I am near you and I bless each of you with my motherly blessing so that you have the strength and love for all the people you meet in your earthly life and that you can give God’s love. I rejoice with you and I desire to tell you that your brother Slavko has been born into Heaven and intercedes for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” These were Our Lady’s reassuring words to us when she appeared to Marija the day after Fr. Slavko died. We all knew that Fr. Slavko was special, a gift from God for us. And today on the 21st anniversary of the passing of Fr. Slavko, it seems that we miss him as much now as we did when he first passed. Fr. Slavko was a true pastor, a true son of Mary, and a true priest. His guidance and trustworthy pastoral care made it possible for the parish of Medjugorje to bear the cross of caring for the millions of pilgrims who come to their little parish each year. We miss him so much. I want to share with you a link to a short video created by our Mary TV Team, to honor Fr. Slavko. You can watch it here. It conveys everything that we could say about him: Mary TV will stream, live, the parish climb up Cross Mountain in honor of Fr. Slavko: 2:00 pm Medj time, today! – Wednesday, November 24, 2021! Join the parish in prayer on the Mary TV Channel –! We await the message coming later today with great anticipation and joy! In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph! Cathy Nolan Mary TV 2021
