Our Lady, Queen of Poland

clipboard16.jpgThe Sanctuary was built around an icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary which was damaged by the partisans of Jan Hus, in 1430. The icon was immediately restored conserving the two wounds inflicted on the primitive icon.

In the 17th century, the fortified monastery situated on the hill of Jasna Gora on the edge of the town of Czestochowa resisted theclipboard14.jpg attacks of the Swedes. Since then, the monastery and the icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary are the symbols of the suffering and the resistance of Poland. Pope John-Paul II came as a pilgrim on several occasions. The feast of the Sanctuary is kept on 26th August. “O Mary, Queen of Poland, I am with you. I remember. I keep watch.“

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.
