March for Life 2017
 

March for Life is an annual national event which brings together all Americans supporting the right to life from the moment of conception to natural death. The march takes place on or around the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision legalizing abortion in the case Roe v. Wade. This year's 44th March for Life took place on Friday, January 27th in Washington D.C.

The massive crowds of people came from across the country in different groups or denominations to show their support and care for life, especially for those who are unborn and have no voice of their own in this world. Among them was a group from our Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa, Doylestown, PA. Our group, led by Pauline Fathers - Fr. Timothy Tarnacki and Fr. Marcin Mikulski, left early in the morning to attend the march and rally in the our nation's capital.

The theme of the 2017 March for Life was „The Power of the One", inspired by the words of a famous writer J.R.R. Tolkien: "Even the smallest person can change the course of history."  This idea serves to build a culture of life, because we know that even one person can make a difference in the world. But unfortunatelly , in the U.S. alone, more than 1 million babies are not even given the opportunity to live and change the world each year, and since the approval of the  Roe v. Wade, 58 million babies have been murdered in abortions. That is why one of the major goals of the Pro-Life Movement is to end abortion and to  provide everyone with an opportunity to make a difference in the world.

Traditional Latin Mass Print E-mail

 

 Traditional Latin Mass

As provided for under the Motu Proprio issued by Pope Benedict, Mass in the extraordinary form (The Latin Mass) is now more widely available and has been growing in popularity. This is the same Mass that existed for 400 years prior to Vatican II. A Latin Mass is now held monthly at the Shrine, on the second Sunday of each month at 11 am. This Mass is held in the downstairs in the Our Lady of Czestochowa chapel, or in St. Anne's chapel depending upon availability.  The TLM is typically a Low Mass with a duration of about an hour. Latin-English Missals are provided. Additional information can be found on the Bucks County Latin Mass Facebook Group.

Pauline celebrations

 

Every year on January 15th the Pauline monks all over the world celebrate the Solemnity of St. Paul the First Hermit, the patron of the Order. St. Paul is considered by the tradition of the Church to be the first hermit. He was a Christian, living in Egypt during the third century. When he was about 16 years old, being afraid of the persecutions, he fled to the desert. After the persecutions of Christian in the Roman Empire were over, Paul decided to answer God's call and stayed in the desert to be alone with God, where he lived for about 90 years. As a first hermit, he is a model of prayer and perseverance not only for monks but also for all the faithful.

Pauline Fathers and Brothers in United States have also honored their patron saint during the Sunday Masses at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa, in Doylestown, PA. These celebrations have been proceded by the novena hymns sung for nine consecutive days in honor of St. Paul during the daily Mass at the Shrine at 11:30 AM.

The main celebrations of St. Paul the First Hermit took place during the Masses at 11 AM in English and 12:30 PM in Polish. The Solemn Mass at 11 AM was presided by Fr. Krzysztof Drybka, the Prior of Pauline Monastery. In his homily, Fr. Prior spoke about the life of St. Paul and the difficult conditions of the desert, where he spent most of His life in solitude with God. St. Paul is also a patron saint of children. For this reason at the end of the Mass, Fr. Prior gave a special blessing for all the children.

Paulińskie świętowanie w USA

 

Dnia 15 stycznia każdego roku zakonnicy Paulińscy na całym świecie obchodzą uroczystość św. Pawła Pierwszego Pustelnika, patriarchy Zakonu Paulinów. Również Paulini posługujący w Stanach Zjednoczonych tego dnia uczcili swojego patrona. Św. Paweł był wspominany w czasie wszystkich niedzielnych Mszy Świętych w Sanktuarium Matki Bożej Częstochowskiej, zwanym Amerykańską Częstochową, w Doylestown, PA oraz w czasie nowenny, popularnie zwanej „Pawełkami", śpiewanej wraz z wiernymi, która poprzedziła uroczystość św. Pawła.

Główne uroczystości odbyły się w czasie Mszy Świętej o godzinie 11 w języku angielskim oraz o 12:30 po polsku. Uroczystej Eucharystii o godzinie 11 przewodniczył o. Krzysztof Drybka, Przeor Klasztoru Paulinów w Doylestown. O. Przeor w swojej homilii przywołał życiorys św. Pawła, podkreślając przy tym trudne warunki pustyni, na której przeżył swój żywot nasz patriarcha. Św. Paweł z Teb jest także uznawany za patrona i szczególnego opiekuna dzieci. Dlatego też pod koniec Mszy św. o. Drybka wygłosił krótką katechezę o św. Pawle skierowaną właśnie do dzieci oraz udzielił im specjalnego błogosławieństwa. Miłym zaskoczeniem dla Ojców i Braci Paulinów było także spontaniczne dziękczynienie wiernych za ich codzienną posługę w Sanktuarium Matki Bożej, wyrażone przez wręczenie bukietu kwiatów dla każdego zakonnika.
