Peace for African Missions
Another Star on the Mantle of our Lady, Queen of Peace, now shines brightly at the Center of African Missions at Borzecin Duzy, near Warsaw.
The Center, run by missionary fathers from the Association of African Missions, joined the work of the Stars on May 29, 2022, the Solemnity of the Ascension of our Lord.
On this occasion, with permission of H.E. Cardinal Nycz, Metropolitan of Warsaw, the Chapel of St. Paul’s Conversion also gained another title: the Chapel of Our Lady, Queen of Peace. His Eminence presided over the solemn Holy Mass and shared how man’s dignity is downtrodden by war, but exalted to the greatest heights, first by the Incarnation, then by the Resurrection and the Ascension. His Eminence expressed his joy at the fact that prayer for peace before the Blessed Sacrament would be raised in the Chapel, but at the same time appealed for Christian action that must flow from this prayer. The Eucharistic Jesus calls us to defend the human dignity of each person that God places in our path.
Mr. Piotr Ciolkiewicz, president of the Association of Comunità Regina della Pace, as well as other representatives from the Association, presented to His Eminence the Certificate of Designation to the Work of the Stars on the Mantle of Our Lady, Queen of Peace. We rejoice greatly in the fact that this place, full of missionary spirit, will serve its guests, both cleric and lay, retreatants, and missionary fathers, as a place of prayer for peace in Africa and the whole world.
