PROJECT 52 – Week 34

Anima Christi
(Soul of Christ)
Every year, on first sunday after the feast of ”Mala Gospa” in Medjugorje parish it is tradition to celebrate the THE EXALTATION OF THE HOLY CROSS. This year the Holy Mass was celebrated on sunday the 15th of september on Križevac hill.
So many people were on that sunday gathered around the Cross, to celebrate the Holy Mass, to ask Jesus to show them path to his Heart and Soul, how to live life according to gospel.
I called this photo ”Anima Christi” (the Soul of Christ), because most of the people are hurt and craving for Jesus to heal their souls.

Here you can read in Latin and in english an old prayer Anima Christi:

Anima Christi, sanctifica me.
Corpus Christi, salva me.
Sanguis Christi, inebria me.
Aqua lateris Christi, lava me.
Passio Christi, conforta me.
O bone Jesu, exaudi me.
Intra tua vulnera absconde me.
Ne permittas me separari a te.
Ab hoste maligno defende me.
In hora mortis meae voca me.
Et iube me venire ad te,
Ut cum Sanctis tuis laudem te.
In saecula saeculorum.


Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Separated from Thee let me never be (“Permit me not to be separated from Thee”)
From the malicious enemy defend me (“From the malignant enemy defend me”)
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto Thee
That I may praise Thee with Thy saints (“That with thy Saints I may praise Thee”)
Forever and ever


PROJECT 52 – Week 32

From Dust to Dust
When I took this photo on Križevac Hill (in Medjugorje), I had one sentence on my mind:
”By the sweat of your brow will you have food to eat until you return to the ground from which you were made. For you were made from dust, and to dust you will return.” (Genesis 3:19)

Križevac is a hill above Medjugorje (520 m). On its top the parishioners 15th of march 1934, raised 8.56 meters high reinforced concrete cross on which was written:
”Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of the human race, as a sign of their faith, love and hope, in
reminiscence of 1900 year anniversary of the Passion of Jesus. ”

Youth Fest 2013
Every year Međugorje holds an international youth prayer festival. This year was the 24th.
Youth prayer meeting in Medjugorje 31.7 to 6.8. every year. More than 50.000 youths and 400 priests from the whole world. Pray, testimonies, music, procession with candles, adoration, concert, dance… Spiritual life for young people.
This year was my first, 35 years old and attending my very first youth fest.
Since I had to work during the day, I only went to evening service.
With this photo I wanted to capture the atmosphere in Međugorje in the time of the Holy Mass.

PROJECT 52 – Week 18

Peaceful Swing
This simple wooden swing (located in the saint Francis garden in Medjugorje), got my attention with its nice geometry and its shaddow. It looks that the Sun had made its composition and all that’s left, was someone to see it and capture it.
I just had that luck. 🙂
