ICON OF THE MADONNA OF LIDICE BLESSED BY THE POPE

Pope Francis has recalled the 75th anniversary of the Lidice massacre at the hands of the Nazi regime during his weekly General Audience on Wednesday.
In a special Czech-language greeting to pilgrims in St. Peter’s Square, the Holy Father invited them to rely “with trust on the intercession of the Holy Virgin, whom you venerate in the icon of the Madonna of Lidice”. He prayed Our Lady help them “to be courageous witnesses of the Resurrection of Christ, especially in difficult or trying moments”.

The group is participating in a national pilgrimage being led by Cardinal Dominik Duka, Archbishop of Prague and Chaplain General of the Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem, which brought the icon to Rome. Icon of the Madonna of Lidice was hand-painted by Chevalier Zdirad Čech and from 1th June 2017 is located in Church of Saint Marcellinus and Peter. This church is titular church of cardinal Duka.


*The village of Lidice (then in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia and now in the Czech Republic) was completely destroyed by Nazi troops in 1942.

CARDINAL DUKA AND PRAGUE FESTIVAL

Cardinal Duka, Chaplain General of the Order, led the celebrations for the feast of St John Nepomuk, Patron Saint of Prague, last week. A splendid Mass in the packed Cathedral celebrated by the Cardinal, who was joined by the Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Giuseppe Leanza with about forty priests in attendance, many seminarians, members of the Order and Chaplain General from Great Britain, Fr Simon Henry as well. In the morning before the Mass, Cardinal Duka received Fr Simon in his office in the Archbishops Palace for a short meeting.

PILGRIMAGE TO CZęSTOCHOWA

From May 5th till May 6th, 2017 the Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem made their first pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Częstochowa in Jasna Góra. It was organized by the Grand Priory of Poland of OSLJ. In this place – so unique for all Poles – an Investiture was also held during which four postulants were admitted to the Order: two sisters and two brothers; and promotions were received by Rev. Prelate Józef Bar and Mariusz Bieńczak from Podkarpacka Commandery as well as by Rev. Prelate Józef Kubalewski and Andrzej Mamys from Kujawsko-Pomorska Commandery.

During the celebration we were honoured by the presence of the representatives of the Grand Priory of Czech Republic with the Grand Master of the Order - Jan Count Dobrzensky from Dobrzenicz, baili Ondrej Vanke and the Chancellor  Petr Rehor.

During the two – day pilgrimage there was also time to see the most precious collections of the history of the Polish nation gathered by the Puline Friars in Jasna Góra. The greatest treasure of the Marian Shrine is the Miraculous Icon of Black Madonna placed in the main altar in the Chapel of Our Lady, which already Jan Długosz himself described in Liber Beneficiorum. The Icon is surrounded by great love of all Poles and it has been receiving due veneration for ages.

There was also a moment for a personal reflection and prayer before the Icon of Our Lady of Jasna Góra – the Patroness of Poland.
