The experiences of the participants of the 20th International Seminar for Priests

date: 08.07.2015.

The 20th International Seminar for Priests is taking place in Medjugorje at the moment, with 400 priests, deacons and seminarians participating. Fr. Bozo Mandaric, the member of the Franciscan Province of the Most Holy Redeemer from Split, serving in the parish of St. George in Gracac, came here for the second time: “This international seminar for priests means a lot to me, as there are many events and lots of prayer. I have chosen Medjugorje as this is the place of silence, peace and encounter with God with the Queen of Peace. As a young priest, I get strength and grace here to be able to persevere in my preisthood. Fr. Franjo Radman, professor at the Franciscan Classic Grammar School in Visoko is also here. He is the educator of the future priests. He told us that Heavenly Mother always brings him to Medjugorje and this year he is here to celebrate his 25th anniversary of his priesthood. “This is the opportunity for me to examine my own priesthood as I can meet here priests from all over the world. It is at the same time revision of our life journey. It is very important for us priests to find time for ourselves as we have been burdened with many obligations and duties.”
