Fray Jozo Zovko was the parish priest of Medjugorje in 1981, at the beginning of the Medjugorje events. The first days he suffered a lot, since his position was not easy. Was it true what the children were saying? Was it a hoax by the communists to discredit the faith?
Finally, a personal experience made him take sides for the children, becoming their protector, which cost him to be imprisoned by the communist authorities for a year and a half.
His words towards us were an unquestionable boost to continue with the work: "I know you and you have my trust, I know that you are not doing this for money, so you can count on my help."
