St. Michael in Brekinska

In the small village of Brekinska there is the church of St. Michael, which belongs to the parish of Gaj. The church is located in the very centre of the village, in the greenery along the main road. Every passenger can stop here in prayer, and forget at least for a moment, everything that bothers her/him. On the meadow in front of the church there is a statue of the Mother of God and Jesus on the Cross above it.

The interior of the church is really special compared to other churches. It is a Slavonian village church where the traditional heritage of the area is outlined - wooden inventory, painted choir, crocheted tablecloths and decorations made by local parishioners.

Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel in the fight against evil

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Through the holy Virgin Mary and Her sinless conception. Amen.

(Pope Leo XIII)
