Naš dragi Nikola, napustio nas je u navečer, na Cvjetnicu, uzlazeći s trpećim Kristom u nebeski Jeruzalem, i pridružujući se nebeskim zborovima! Njegovu radost, smješak, nepokolebljivu volju da ostvari cilj, hrabrost i požrtvovnost u akciji i pozitivan pogled na svijet, bez obzira na nevolje koje su ga snašle, zadržat ćemo uvijek u sjećanju! Nikola, hvala ti za sve što si učinio za naš ZKŽ, dok si cijelu Hrvatsku predstavljao na svjetskoj skupštini u Libanonu 2013, na europskim susretim 2014 i 2015 u St’Poltenu i Regensburgu.
A da tvoj optimizam nije zarazio samo nas, svjedoče i svi ovi naši prijatelji iz ZKŽ-a iz cijelog svijeta!
Čekaj nas, dok se ne sretnemo kod Gospodina, i spremi nam najbolje mjesto u nebeskom zboru!

|Trieste, lunedi santo 2015Il Signore ci ha fatto dono di incotrare Nikola un anno fa circa in un incontro delle cumunita di vita cristiana che si erano date appuntamento a Trieste. Ci siamo sentiti una comunita di veri amici nel Signore, uniti da uno stesso dono spirituale: il carisma ignaziano. Nikola celebra ora la Pasqua eterna dopo avere percorso un lungo tratto di strada in breve tempo. Ci accompagni nel nostro cmmino e ci faccia dono di essere “una sola comunita di fede” nella varieta delle lingue, culture e tradizioni, una comunita d’amore il cui linguaggio tutti capiscono.Ciao, Nikola: sei stato anche per noi di Trieste un dono del Signore e ti diciamo il nostro grazie nell’unico rendimento di grazie che sale al Padre in Cristo: l’eucaristia.p. Roberto e tutta CVX di Trieste<HRV>Prije otprilike godinu dna, Gospodin nam je ukazao milos i dao nam da upoznamo Nikolu tijekom tijekom jednog susreta ZKŽ-a u Trstu. Od prvog trenutka osjetili smo zajedništvo prijateljstva u Gospodin u, ujedinjeni zajedničkim duhovnim darom: ignacijanskom karizmom. Nikola sada slavi vječni Uskrs nakon što je prešao veliki put u vrlo kratkom vremenu. Neka nas prati na našem putu i zagovaraj nas, da postanemo “jedna jedina zajednica vjere” sastavljena od više jezika, kultura i tradicija, zajednica ljubavi, a taj jezik svi razumiju. Pozdravljamo te, Nikola, ti si bio dar Božji i za nas iz Trsta i iskazujemo ti ovom Euharistijom našu zahvalnost Ocu u Kristu! P.

|Tražio sam s njegovog profila koju ću fotku staviti…i kad vidjeh Nikolu pod križem, rekoh: “To je to!” Gospodin ga je pozvao večeras, na Cvjetnicu… Isus i Nikola.. muka i križ su iza njih, a vječna radost ispred njih… Nikola nas je sve naučio kako nositi svoj križ, kako ne bježati od njega. U radosti, Siniša, nosi svoj križ! To sam i od Nikole naučio. Nikad ga nisam vidio tužnog, već uvijek nasmijanog, pamtim tisuću njegovih šala na vlastiti račun… I razmišljam što je prvo učinio kad je večeras stupio pred njegovog i mog Isusa. Znate što? Zapjevao mu!! Da! Pjesmu je volio jako! odmah je postao član nebeskog zbora! Eh, da mi je čuti Nikolin glas kada dočekam i svoju Cvjetnicu… jednom…kad Isus to odluči… Dotad, zapjevajmo i mi nešto Isusu, neku pjesmu koju najviše volimo. I Nikola će pjevati s nama. Siguran sam!

|Dear all,We also received the news about Nikola’s passing with great sadness and are united in prayers with his family and all CLC members in Croatia.On behalf of all members of CLC Uruguay, we’d like to share this prayer from St. Alberto Hurtado, SJ in honor of Nikola’s memory:„Not even death itself may taint the profound joy of a Christian. For us, it means not defeat but victory: the moment when we will see God. Life was given to us to seek God, death to find Him, and eternity to possess Him. It comes a time when, after reaching the end of the road, we find ourselves at the very end. We find our Father and throw ourselves into His arms, loving arms that were nailed to the Cross so that they would always remain open.“Saint Alberto Hurtado, 1946Our warmest regards in the hope of Christ’s Resurrection,Santiago, Isabel, Pablo, and Mace, CLC Uruguay|

|+++ Poruka zahvale +++|
| Dragi prijatelji! Naša mala zajednica ZKŽ ove godine je konkretno i intenzivno proživljavala Pashalno otajstvo uz našeg Nikolu: njegovu muku, smrt i vjeru u uskrsnuće i vječni život vidjeli smo kroz njegovu patnju. Dok je trpio strašne bolove, nikad ga nismo čuli da je bio ljut na Boga, dok je ležao u bolnici, molio je svećenika da mu često donosi sv. Pričest. U svakom trenutku zadržao je optimizam, vedrinu i poznati smisao za humor. Posebno su ga ohrabrile sve vaše poruke potpore i vaše molitve. Sa svima vama moram podijeliti i njegov neostvareni projekt: da bi osigurao egzistenciju sebi i mami, koja ga je njegovala, planirao je preurediti staru kuću na otoku Krku, urediti apartmane za turizam, ali ih dijelom dati na korištenje i svjetskoj ZKŽ, da njegova kuća postane mjesto odmora i susreta ZKŽ-a sa svih strana svijeta. A sve vas bi pitao financijsku pomoć za taj projekt. Naravno, naša nacionalna zajednica prihvatila je taj projekt za njega!Ali dragi Bog je isplanirao drugačije!Njegov pokop bio je istinski doticaj sa Uskrslim gospodinom, ispratili smo ga pjesmom, s gitarama, slavili smo sv. Misu, i posljednja pjesma na grobu bila je „Uskrsnuo je….“.Mama, tata i brat su vam neizmjerno zahvalni na riječima potpore i ohrabrenja, svakome pojedinačno!
A naša mala zajednica ne prestaje hvaliti i slaviti Boga na širini prijateljstva u Gospodinu, koji se je poslužio Nikolom da nas poveže!
Doista, neka sada Nikola moli za sve nas!
U tom duhu, želimo vam svima sretan Uskrs
Dear friends in Lord!
This year our little Christian Life Community has intensively experienced Paschal mystery together with the pain of our dear Nikola, through which we conceived his faith in the resurrection and enternal life. While he was suffering terrible pain, we never once heard him complain or being angry at God. Moreover, during his stay in hospital he asked priest to regularly bring him the Holy Communion. Nikola managed to keep his optimism, cheerfulness and well known humor at all times. He was particularly encouraged by your prayers and messages of support!
I would also like to share with you the plan he was working on despite being ill – in order to ensure the existence for himself and his mother, who nurtered him, he planned to rearrange his old house on the island of Krk, arrange the appartments for tourism, and also give part of them on usage to the world Christian Life Community, so that his house could become a place of rest and encounters for Christian Life Communities from all parts of the world. He wanted to ask for your financial help in order to accomplish his goal. Ofcourse, our national community accepted this procject for him!
But, dear God has planned things differently!
Nikola’s funeral was a true touch with our Risen Lord. We send him off with songs, guitars, celebrated the Holy Mass, and the last song that we sang on his grave was ”He is Risen up”.
In the name off all world CLC community, at the holly mass, Caterina and Andrea Pettazzoni from CLC Trieste – Italy read 3 prayers: their own, from CLC Italy and CLC Austria, and here is their testimony:
This morning I woke up thinking about yesterday and I want to praise the Lord for yesterday.
Yes, even yesterday, in the grief of Nikola’s loss we have received gifts and gifts:
First of all thanks to you who helped us through the singing and playing the guitar (also Damian’s son!) not to stay closed in the silence of one’s own grief. On the contrary, gathering together and looking above we have lived that moment together, also with Nikola, who looks at us from above, surely with love.
Through our being only the voice of the friend’s prayers, yesterday I could live what Nik said during Adriatica CLC Meeting last year: we are not CLC Croatia, CLC Austria, CLC Italy, etc.., but we all belong to ONE CLC.
Thank you Nik!
And praise be to Lord for Nik’s life!“
Nikola’s mother, father and brother are immensely grateful for your words of support and encouragement, to each and every one of you!
All your messages, we put together as treasure, are on our web site:
Our small community does not stop to praise and celebrate God for giving us this beautiful gift – Nikola, who bound us all together!
Indeed, let Nikola prays for all of us!
In this spirit, we wish you all a happy Easter!
Damijan Srdoč, CLC Croatia, president
