Summary/Abstract: A long and stormy history of Lašva’s monastery is interwoven with strong persons who lived really human, Franciscan-monkish and priestly consistent lives. In a geographic map of the Franciscan movement, Bosnian Franciscans are a unique historical experience because of historical coalescing with the common Bosnian people, with their homeland – although they always were “strangers and newcomers” there. Very often they were exposed to unbearable difficulties, also to death, but it didn’t stop their enthusiasm and ideals. Their ideals are Franciscan ones and rooted in the Bible; it is deep faith, stable hope, and above all the love of Christ, of the Church and of the people they lived for. Celebrating the 100-aniversary it is impossible to mention all of the persons woven into life of the monastery, but in the form of a small reading, there are mentioned some of those who built the monastery and the church, those “uncles” whose footprints are deeply imprinted in its history as writers, bishops, persons with historical meaning.
