100 days of peregrination today

From the shores of the Pacific Ocean in Vladivostok on June 15th, to this day, September 22nd, - 100 days have passed!  Our Blessed Mother Mary in the Icon of Czestochowa, peregrinating across the world for the protection of the civilization of life, has already traveled 30 thousand kilometers and 12 countries:  Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Slovenia.  Currently, the Icon is peregrinating in Croatia.

The next 11 countries are preparing for the visit of Our Lady:  Italy, Austria, Lichtenstein, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Great Britain, Ireland, France, Spain, and Portugal.  Hence, the whole world is yet before us, and the plans are very broad - and to think this appeared to be quite impossible!

All the pro-lifers in subsequent countries claim unanimously that there has not been yet  a pro-life campaign of this magnitude, and that this one continues on at present and is bringing abundant fruit.  Our Lady is met everywhere by large crowds of people, who pray with great emotion, go to Confession, oftentimes crying and declaring their involvement in the protection and defense of life.  There has been no aggression anywhere.  Our Blessed Mother is healing the broken and wounded human hearts.

Everywhere, the visits are taking place in the company of local bishops.  The Icon is visiting not only the Catholic churches, but also the Orthodox ones.  The defense of life and the Mother of God are uniting all the faithful.

Let us thank Our Blessed Mother!
