GOOD DEFEATED EVIL TODAY, GOD IS REVEALED TO THOSE WITH PURE HEART

 

KONJIC, July 12 /SRNA/ - His Grace the Bishop of Zahumlje-Herzegovina and the Littoral Dimtirije said on Friday after the consecration of the reconstructed Church of Holy Apostles Peter and Paul in the Konjic village of Borci, that today good defeated evil and that God is revealed to those with a pure heart.

 

“The one with a pure heart can be saved. God created us free and in this freedom we can become God-like, people of love and peace, and we can also become criminals and people of crime. All this proved to be true in the fate of the Golubović family. Today, we did not allow evil to defeat us but we defeated it with good,” Bishop Dimitrije said.

After the consecration of the church, which was reconstructed to the glory of Holy Apostles Peter and Paul and in memory of Serbian boys Petar and Pavle /Peter and Paul/ Golubović who were killed together with their parents in 1992 in Konjic, Bishop Dimitrije said that the cry to God – how such a tragedy was possible, had turned into a shining church.

“While entering this church, praying to God in it, celebrating a holy service, taking communion, we really feel that God has the last word, that He allowed people to be free and allowed this horrible tragedy, but it seems that there was no other way,” Bishop Dimitrije said.

The Bishop of Zahumlje-Herzegovina and the Littoral has said that God could have created people to be like puppets, but that then nothing would be either good or bad, that people would be like puppets or robots.

“Or He could have given us freedom, and some will be saints and some, unfortunately, criminals. There is hope and space for everyone in God’s love so that no one should lose hope, even those criminals,” Bishop Dimitrije said.

Bishop Dimitrije has said that the first man who entered paradise was a criminal from the cross who repented and that the first woman who saw the resurrected Lord was a harlot.

He has said that God many times and in many ways showed that He loves all the people and waits endlessly, but that they bear responsibility for their actions, adding that everyone needs repentance.

Bishop Dimitrije on Friday consecrated the reconstructed Church of Holy Apostles Peter and Paul in the Konjic village of Borci.

The church was reconstructed to the glory of Holy Apostles Peter and Paul and in memory of Serbian boys Petar and Pavle /Peter and Paul/ Golubović who, together with their parents, were killed in 1992 in Konjic.

A plaque is put at the church entrance saying that the church was built in 1896, that it was reconstructed this year to the glory of Holy Apostles Peter and Paul and in memory of killed Serbian boys Petar and Pavle, that the patron of the reconstruction is Milorad Dodik in the capacity of the Republika Srpska president.

There is an icon in the church depicting Apostles Peter and Paul with boys Petar and Pavle. /end/sg
