August 29, 1983:Concerning a group of young people before they leave for their pilgrimage to Siroki Brijeg at a youth festival:
"I wish that you pray throughout your trip, and that you glorify God. There, you will be able to meet other young people. Convey the messages which I have given you. Do not hesitate to speak to them about it. Some begin to pray and to fast just as they have been told, but they get tired very quickly, and thus loose the graces which they have acquired."
