Presentation of the book ‘The House of Precious Stones’
On 2 September 2022 at 18:00 in the hall of the Rehobot Foundation the book: ‘The House of Precious Stones‘ was presented.
The writer, Marija Lukačin, mother of 9 children, suggests how to combine the obligations of wife and mother with work commitments with common sense and balance.
In the presentation of the book, the Carmelite father, Zlatko Pletikosić, highlighted the particularity of this book that comes from everyday life and teaches to live the everyday. It is the story of a family that, despite the problems and adversities, knows how to reserve spaces for intimacy and mutual attention. The golden key, a symbol chosen by the author, opens a world where defeats and victories, disappointments and hopes, suffering and joys are the little precious stones that the book offers to the reader. Every experience becomes advice and every advice a new light.
Msgr.Jorge Ramos, a priest of Opus Dei, wrote in his preface:
‘This book is a powerful battle cry against the boredom of monotony and an encouragement to live married life faithfully.’
Numerous guests attended the event.
