The Eucharist was exposed for adoration and long lines formed for confession.
The images of the Pentecost vigil held last Saturday in Zagreb, capital of Croatia, inspired millions of Christians around the world. About 55,000 Catholics packed the Maksimir Stadium to participate in the vigil, organized by a partnership between the Apostolic Nunciature and Laudato TV, the Croatian affiliate of the US Catholic network EWTN, founded by Mother Angelica. The ACI Digital news agency, also affiliated with EWTN, reported on the event.
Part of the vigil was the sixth “Look Through the Heart” concert, featuring 17 main artists and their bands, including a total of more than 100 musicians.
The essence of the gathering, however, was eminently spiritual: the Blessed Sacrament was exposed for Eucharistic adoration, and throughout the vigil there were lines of people seeking confession, with dozens of priests available in the confessionals.
