CROATIAN MARIAN SHRINES, the shrine of the Mother of God of Bistrica
  • CROATIAN MARIAN SHRINES, the shrine of the Mother of God of Bistrica
  • Our most famous Marian shrine is the basilica minor in Marija Bistrica. The town of Bistrica was recorded for the first time in 1209, while the first record of a parish with a church occurred in 1334. The building was certainly erected before this first record. The statue of the Mother of God of Bistrica is a 15th-century Gothic wooden statue, known as the Black Madonna with Child. In 1998, Pope Saint John Paul II visited Marija Bistrica, where he beatified Alojzije Stepinac.

  • The first record of the parish of Voćin dates back to 1334, but the church is certainly even older than that. It was erected by John Corvinus or, according to an alternative theory, by the dukes of the House of Ilok. It is the size of a cathedral: it is almost thirty-five metres long and, at one point, its tower was forty metres tall. In the words of Ivan Mažuranić’s Death of Smail-Aga Čengić, Our Lady of Voćin, the Mother of Refuge, reminds us that: “nor should you be proclaimed barbarians / just for dying
