There is written evidence for the Holy Thorn that it was brought to Pag in 1443 by Fr. Ivan Tutnić, upon his return from the Holy Land where he received it. The sacred thorn was given to his sister at her solemn monastic vows in the Benedictine monastery in Pag (Dr. Granić). The thorn is hermetically sealed in a glass cylinder and is never opened again. It is well preserved. The authenticity of the thorn was confirmed by the papal envoys by saying, “Esse de corona Domini! It is from the crown of the Lord!”. For centuries, the nuns have carefully guarded this relic in a chest with four keys. Now they have decided to disclose this relic and donate it to all of us. Therefore, we were encouraged to invite you as well. Bow before this relic in the hope that it will answer your prayers. For the necessary peace before the holy thorn, we suggest dates outside the tourist season to visit.
