Our Lady, Gate of the Dawn

marijasuauksu.jpgThe Sanctuary grew up around a 17th century painting of the Virgin with out the Child. The painting was placed at the gates of the town, “the Gate of the Dawn“

The Blessed Virgin Mary is invoked as “Mother of Mercy“. The inhabitants of the town always came to pray for themselves and for the protection of the town.

A small chapel was built to protect the painting. A monumental stairway leads to the chapel. The place is venerated by Catholic, Orthodox and Lutheran Christians._dsf0520a.jpg

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.
