Hy from Croatia...
 
I'ma 36-year-old catholic from Croatia, was Christian since birth but inmy early twenties, i have received great graces from God through thefeast of Divine Mercy and the accompanying rosary that is prayed as apart of that devotion. Since I'm geographically close to this I hadmany encounters with Međugorje and father Zlatko Sudac, where I alsoreceived great graces...

I'man unemployed writer. I'm writing a novel recently where I'm tryingto incorporate important and controversial questions of today'sChristian and Catholic world into a novel, and this way question a whole thing...

Welcome, Adam. We would like to help you with your project of writing a novel about Christianity. Perhaps we could provide some useful information. Please post again with a question.

Hello Adam and welcome to our forum! I understand that as a Catholic you may have never had the opportunity to read the Bible, but I'll ask anyway: what is your favorite verse?

Gretings Croatian friend!


It is a great thing that someone is trying to contribute to expand the world of Catholic authors of fiction, considering that when we think about it we only talk about Chesterton and Tolkien most of the time. :thumbsup:


By the way, unlike many other Italians, I'm not mad about the fact that Istria and Fiume are now part of Croatia, since I'm not worshipping the bald hanged-man. However, I hop that you encourage your fellow Croatians to not deny the genocide of the Foibe that happened under Tito, as it is not a good thing denying war atrocities (something that Anglo-Saxons, Germans, Turks, Russians, Chinese and Japanese do all the time :angry:).


Anyway, I wish you good luck and I will pray to St. Thomas Aquinas that you will have success with your book! :bye:

Thats excatly what i had in mind...
To have that impact of baptism in my novel, i hope you will help me ! I'm also writing on one orthodox christian forum where I gather information from their denomination also. Novel is a place where we could easily put everyones information in one place without much argue and then see what will turn out true in a near future. Its like a poem...


Im specificly interested in apocalyptic events ahead of us, if there are any to see with our own eyes in the near future. I believe there are many and i will describe them in my novels.

Tito goes in my book also, it was Yugoslaw Partisans who did war crimes against Italians, this communist Army consisted mostly of non-Croats - they were biggest enemy of Croatia in a war. And im also not mad at Venice that they stealed our land in Dalmatia during Ottoman Incursions and even before that, using crusaders to conquer Zadar for them. I will pray divine mercy rosary for you !

Hello, and welcome to the Landover Baptist Church! If you would start praying to Jesus instead of to popes and saints, I'm sure the Lord would help you find a job. Or are you one of the fifty-percenters who expect the government to subsidize your lazy lifestyle?

Favourite bible verse:


Revelation 16:16

And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

Arrmageddon means "between the hills", and Međugorje means "between the hills" so think that Međugorje is the possibble exact location of Armageddon. I will put this in my novel. You say your opinion on Armageddon, or baptist view of it in general, so i cna put that also in my novel and make it more interesting...

Hello Adam, and may I offer you the warmest of Landover welcomes! Tell us why, as a Croatian, are you so fascinated by something that happened - or (more likely) didn't happen - in Međugorje, which is in Bosnia and Herzegovina?

Whereabouts in Croatia are you from?

That's very true Brother. Too many foreigners come over here with the expectation of a better life - that's elitist against hard working Americans.

I don't know what the culture is like in the OP's country but before he comes here to take our jobs I recommend he take mandatory equity, diversity and inclusivity training. Ask yourself: do you want to be like the short fat guy on the left or his bitchy secretary? The correct answer is BOTH of course.

Not true - har megiddo: הר מגיד - means Mount Meggido.

This is Mount Megiddo - in northern Israel, not in former Yugoslavia:

It cannot be, since Mount Meggido (Har Meggido) is in Israel.

However, I'd like to also point out that "between the hills" - which has nothing to do with Armageddon - is a rather common etymology in hilly areas. Here is the picture of the sleepy village Międzygórze (that's western Slavic for "between the hills;" despite different spelling, pronunciation is very similar to Međugorje) in now-Poland, used-to-be Germany:

It is going to happen any time now, because Jesus said that now - right now - there are people alive who will see it happen:

Matthew 16:28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.

I think you and me can agree that Jesus was not talking to His disciples - who have all died 2000 years ago - but directly to us today!

He probably dreams of another war to incorporate it to Serbia or Croatia or whatever.

Aren't Bosniaks all Muslims? I sometimes listen to their Radio Rujnica (no talk, all music) because I find fascinating the combination of Slavic and Arab elements - the language is Slavic but the music is very much Middle Eastern.

Sister, I think you'll find that (despite their protestations to the contrary) Croats, Serbs, and Bosniaks are completely the same thing. In fact, they're all just kinds of Turk.

Perhaps you could work into your novel a place called Landover Baptist Church and its head Pastor named Pastor Zeke. It would be a place that saved the world from sin and from worship of fake gods. Pastor Zeke would be a heroic figure who crisscrosses the globe saving souls for Jesus.

Even though Landover Baptist is a real place as is Pastor Zeke a real person, both are so exciting they would help any novel.

This is a fantastic idea. And once I return to Barnes & Noble I could totally talk to them about circulating it. We're running short on listings for Christian history.

Excellent idea. Also for your wonderful idea I would suggest Adam "donates" 15% of the sales to the jet fund, so Zeke can do the criss crossing faster and in style.

This is an insult and historical ignorance, Croatia is called "the bulwark of Christianity" in history for our soldiers stopping the Jihad incursion in Europe done by the Ottoman Turks. The war lasted for centuries. Even the part of Croatia that was conquered by the Turks still had kept its Christian heritage and people there remained Christians, and there is your answer why are there Christians even today in Bosnia.

Great idea...
Just to prove im real lets make a deal, few days from now, or a week, im planning to publish the first episode in the series of my novel. I will mention Pastor Zeke and Landover baptist Church in my novel, and explicitly write that sentence, that one day they will save the world, and when its proven that i was saying to truth you thank me by spreading my novel in any way you can. If it get famous you folks on this forum will get famous. If its God will it will be like that...

Oh, I'd be really touched, it's just, fame isn't something I ever aspired for or expected. But if it happens, it happens. Do you need [*** SHOCKING OFFER OF PERSONAL DETAILS REMOVED BY GODLY MODERATOR ***] from me to include in your book?
