MGR. DOMINIQUE REY BISHOP OF FRÉJUS-TOULON IS MADE PRELATE GRAND CROSS OF THE ORDER

The annual Chapter of the Grand Priory of Monaco took place on 10th June at Castelet in the presence of Monsignor Dominique Rey, Bishop of Fréjus-Toulon. Also present were HE Count Jan Dobrzenskÿ z Dobrzenicz, Grand Master of Order and HE Prince Charles-Philippe d' Orléans, Duke of Anjou and Grand Master Emeritus, now Grand Prior of France and President of the Governing Council of the Order.
On this occasion Archbishop Rey received the Grand Cross of the Order, becoming a Prelate Grand Cross. In addition, one new Consoeur and seven new Confreres entered the Order, whilst eight members were promoted. Thanks be to God.
Bishop Rey is renowned far beyond his own diocese in the south of France for his forward thinking and the number of ordinations he draws to his diocese, bucking the trend of most dioceses in the western world. Also, for his support of tradition in the Church. For the past several years he has been the inspiration behind an innovative Liturgical Conference - Sacra Liturgia - this year held in Milan (and previously in Rome and London). To say nothing of the annual festival of St Tropez (the Bravade), which draws thousands to take part in the three-day spectacle every year.

CHEV. ANTHONY DICKINSON WAS PRESENTED WITH A BENEMERENTI

Chev. Anthony Dickinson KLJ was presented with a Benemerenti. The Benemerenti Medal is an honour awarded by the Pope to members of the clergy and laity for service to the Catholic Church. Originally established as an award to soldiers in the Papal Army, the medal was later extended to the clergy and the laity for service to the Church. The Inscription reads:
The Supreme Pontiff Francis has deigned to decree and freely bestow on the well–deserving gentleman Anthony Dickinson, a gold medal, established to recognise exemplary Christian service, granting him the faculty of being decorated with this honour.

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.
