The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Print E-mail
09-12-nativity_of_the_blessed_virgin_mary-02b.jpgSaturday, September 8th


The Blessed Virgin Mary was born to St. Joachim and St. Anne, to be the famous WOMAN promised in the Proto-evangelium who would crush the head of the serpent.

This feast is a commemoration of that happy and joyful day on which the ever-blessed virgin Mother of God first saw the light of day. The Church accordingly sings on this day, "Thy nativity, virgin Mother of God, has brought joy to the whole world; for from thee has come forth the Sun of justice, Christ the Lord, Who putting away cursing bestowed blessing, and by overcoming death obtained for us life eternal."  


The Solemnity of Our Lady of Czestochowa Print E-mail

We have no historically certain facts concerning the origin and history of the picture until 1382, the year in which the picture was brought to Jasna Gora by Prince Ladislaus Opolczyk. There are many oral traditions and various pious legends surrounding the beginnings of this image. One such tradition holds that the picture was painted by the Evangelist Luke during Our Lady's lifetime. The image was allegedly painted on a wooden panel taken from a table used by the Holy Family at Nazareth.

In 1382, according to the tradition, Prince Ladislaus of Opole (Silesia), formerly a ruler in Ruthenia, acting in the name of King Louis of Hungary intended to transfer the picture from Belz to Opole to safeguard it against invading Tatar tribes. At one time Tatars besieged the Belz castle, and the picture of Our Lady was pierced by an arrow which lodged in her neck. Journeying to Silesia with the picture, Ladislaus stopped to rest in Czestochowa near the small church on Jasna Gora. Here he discerned that Our Lady wished to have the picture remain on this spot. He thus left the picture at the Jasna Gora Church and invited the white-robed Pauline Fathers from Hungary to be in charge of the shrine. Tradition dates this event on August 26, 1382.

Transfiguration of the Lord Print E-mail

transfiguration.jpgSunday, August 6th


The Transfiguration of Christ is the culminating point of His public life, as His Baptism is its starting point, and His Ascension its end.

About a week after His sojourn in Cæsarea Philippi, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John and led them to a high mountain apart, where He was transfigured before their ravished eyes. 

This dazzling brightness which emanated from His whole Body was produced by an interior shining of His Divinity. False Judaism had rejected the Messias, and now true Judaism, represented by Moses and Elias, the Law and the Prophets, recognized and adored Him, while for the second time God the Father proclaimed Him His only-begotten and well-loved Son. By this glorious manifestation the Divine Master, who had just foretold His Passion to the Apostles (Matthew 16:21), and who spoke with Moses and Elias of the trials which awaited Him at Jerusalem, strengthened the faith of his three friends and prepared them for the terrible struggle of which they were to be witnesses in Gethsemani, by giving them a foretaste of the glory and heavenly delights to which we attain by suffering.
