Msza Wieczerzy Pańskiej w Wielki Czwartek w Amerykańskiej Częstochowie

Paschal Triduum is a period of three days in the Catholic Church that celebrate the most important mysteries of our salvation - the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. At the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa, we started celebrating these events on Holy Thursday with the Mass of the Lord’s Supper. Being grateful to God for the gift of Priesthood and Eucharist, all Pauline Fathers concelebrated the Mass. Fr. Tadeusz Lizinczyk, the Provincial of the Pauline Order in USA was the main celebrant.


Wielki Piątek - Liturgia Męki i Śmierci Pana Jezusa  


W Wielki Piątek Liturgia Męki i Śmierci Pana Jezusa odbyła się w Sanktuarium o godz. 3 po południu. Przewodniczył jej oraz wygłosił Słowo Boże o. Krzysztof Drybka, Przeor Amerykańskiej Częstochowy.


Wielki Piątek - Droga Krzyżowa


In the evening we also celebrated the Way of the Cross, at the outside Stations of the Cross, led by Fr. Timothy Tarnacki. The meditations for this devotion were taken from the Way of the Cross with Pope Francis at the Colosseum in Rome, written by young people.


Wielka Sobota - Warta przy grobie Pana Jezusa


Holy Saturday, is the day when Christians pray in silence by the Tomb of Christ and await His resurrection. Polish Scouts from Philadelphia were keeping watch at the Tomb of Christ in the Church.


  Tradycyjna Polska Święconka

During that day, there was also traditional Polish “Swieconka” - the blessing of Easter Food. Throughout the day, the Pauline Fathers blessed baskets of food brought by the faithful.


Uroczysta Liturgia Wigilii Paschalnej


At dusk we celebrated the Solemn Liturgy of the Easter Vigil at our Shrine, presided by Fr. Dominik Libiszewski. During this solemn celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the faithful were able to listen to the history of salvation in the proclaimed Biblical readings, renew their baptismal promises and participate in the blessing of the water.


Procesja Rezurekcyjna


On Easter Sunday morning there was a Resurrection Procession and Mass. The Main Celebrant was Father Provicial Tadeusz Lizinczyk. Traditional Polish hymns were sung and banners were carried during the procession in honor of the Risen Christ.

The Pauline Fathers and Brothers of American Czestochowa would like to wish to everyone during this Easter season, that the Resurrected Lord will fill you with joy, peace and hope, that as Jesus has conquered death, in the same way God can raise us up from our sins and weaknesses, granting to us a new life together with Christ.
