Maria Auxiliatrix

clipboard10.jpgThe Sanctuary originates from a vow made by a soldier at the time of the Napoleonic wars in Europe. He promised that if he returned safe and sound he would produce a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This is why the Sanctuary is dedicated to Maria Auxiliatrix (Auxilium = help).

2007 will be the centenary of the crowning of the statue.

The Sanctuary is linked with Croatia and especially with the Sanctuary of Marija Bistrica.clipboard09.jpg

Pope John-Paul II visited the Sanctuary as a pilgrim on 17th May 1996. The Feast of the Sanctuary is on 24th May.

O my Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, I offer myself entirely to Thy grace and to Thy overwhelming mercy today and forever, but mostly at the hour of my death do I dedicate myself to thee. To thee do I dedicate my body and soul, all my happiness and hope, all my sorrows and sufferings! I offer my life and the end of my life to Thy holy hands so that through Thy merits all my deeds and acts go according to Thy holy will and according to the will of Thy sweetest Son! Amen.
