Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord

Hail Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with you,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus!

This is one of seven plaques recently erected in Medjugorje on a white wall close to where Fr Slavko is buried. The panels depict the religious life of Fr Lino OFM, a Croatian Franciscan monk, who spent much of his life working with the poor and marginalised in Parma, Italy, during the early part of the 20th Century. He died May 14, 1924. The plaque shows Fr Lino at prayer in front of a picture depicting the Annunciation of the Lord. During his time at Parma he was based at a Franciscan convent that adjoined the Church of the Annunciation.
