PROJECT 52 – Week 31

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 26

Prayer in Silence
Another photo from the same pilgrimage to Italy.
Location was Padua in the Pontifical Basilica of Saint Anthony of Padua (Italian: Basilica Pontificia di Sant’Antonio di Padova).
We came to Padua in the morning, and came in the Basilica. I was instantly attracted by this sight that you can see on this photograph, rays of morning light breaking through windows of this great church.
Because we, as a group were in a hurry to go to service in a nearby chapel, I didn’t succeeded to take this shot. I was telling my girlfriend that a missed oportunity never returns. But she told me, while others were taking a break before morning service, that we could return inside the Basilica so i can take a shot at this beautiful sight. And so we did.
Thank you Ana-Marija for helping and believing in me. 🙂
