The minority Catholic population of Bosnia-Herzegovina has tried to "live according to the Gospel and to practice love of enemy" despite attempts to wipe out the Catholic Church in the region, underlined Bishop Franjo Komarica of the Diocese of Banja Luka.
The bishop from the small European country made this statement at a congress held recently by the German branch of Aid to the Church in Need.
The prelate said he has seen "a reckless face of Europe" in the last decade, where "the weak ones were walked all over.
“Wherever God is not being honored, man is not being respected," he pointed out. "Such are the consequences of communism and materialism."
