A prominent Bosnian cardinal has said that "forgiveness can be achieved" following the consecration of a Catholic church in the town of Bugojno in central Bosnia.
Cardinal Vinko Puljic, who is retired, blessed the new church — Our Lady of the Angels — earlier this month on the Feast of Our Lady of the Angels and told the Sarajevo Times: "In its own way, it is preserving the memory of our past and our trust in Our Lady's intercession. Our world is especially devoted to Our Lady, and on this day, complete forgiveness can be achieved."
The new church is perceived as a symbol of peace in a location where notorious violence broke out between Catholics and Muslims during the Bosnian war (1992-1995).
