The greatest gift of God’s love is received when love becomes real in the love of a good person.  Love comes through those who come in His name.  After many years I still remember the moment  when Cathy Howe came to Mother’s Village. She entered the house where little Jerko, his sister Kata, Josip, Dragica and Ante  live.  In the most providential way Cathy  and her  people of Mother’s Hope Foundation became  dear friends  and benefactors. Every year the donation of Mother’s Hope Foundation enabled us to continue in  providing life for the life of our children.  During the times when we were reparing our  Kindergarten, difficult and memorable times,  it was  Cathy’s help that enabled us to complete the project.  The wonderful people of Mother’s Hope Foundation,  Cathy and  her family came to our rescue giving us hope, security and consolation.

Cathy’s visits to Medugorje and Mother’s Village to me were the times of story listening.   Like a child I listened about the drama of human love and emphaty. Cathy spoke about bishops, priests, people from the world of entartainment and sports personalities.  To me thay all became my own family, brothers and sisters participating in this story of love and care for the needy.
