After the Youth Festival, Međugorje is a lot less crowded. On Sunday morning, we cerebrated the Holy Mass with Father Gianni in Mother’s Village. The Mass was in Italian, but he preached in English and Italian.
On Monday, our last day, we had an inspiration to visit the local parish and take them things from Finland. We met Father Marinko, the parish priest and gave him Finnish flags and cards from our youth festival. We talked to him about the church in Finland, and invited them to come and visit us.
We saw how great God is. It is as St Paul wrote to the Corinthians, for the slave called in the Lord is a freed person in the Lord, just as the free person who has been called is a slave of Christ (1 Cor 7:22). We heard wonderful testimonies, and saw eyes lit up by heavenly love.
