”The Blessing”

The base is inscribed with a prayer for family harmony and prosperity, and visible appeals are inscribed in golden letters in Croatian Glagolitic: love, peace, joy.
(Copyright Boris Pecigoš)

Along our life’s journey, good fortune accompanies us,
peace and love pervade in every breath we take
because we are blessed in every way.
From above, the spirit supports our efforts
to live our mission while nurturing our loved ones
with harmony, affection, devotion, and respect
and while creating a warm hearth for our family
and for our dear friends whom we gladly welcome in.
Our faith is a source of bravery and wisdom
while we successfully handle the challenges in life
that endow us with greater awareness, light,
and an openness to accept what we are given, health
and a wealth of joy and material goods.

Na životnom putu prati nas sreća,
a svaki naš udah prožet je mirom i ljubavlju
jer blagoslovljeni smo u svakom pogledu.
Duh s visina podržava naša nastojanja
da živimo svoju misiju dok gajimo
obiteljski sklad, povezanost, odanost i poštovanje,
i dok gradimo toplo ognjište za našu obitelj
kao i drage nam prijatelje koje rado ugošćujemo.
Naša vjera izvor je hrabrosti i mudrosti
u uspješnom nošenju s izazovima života
koji nam donose sve veću spoznaju i svjetlost,
kao i otvorenost na primanje darova obilja
u zdravlju, veselju i materijalnim dobrima.
