The Jubilee Meeting at Jasna Góra Shrine
The Queen of Peace – The Woman of the Eucharist – has been inspiring, accompanying and supporting “The 12 Stars” from the very beginning, i.e. for the last 10 years. This Work came into being on the Solemnity of The Annunciation of the Lord in 2009, on 25 March, when the first International Center of Prayer for Peace was set up in Jerusalem, at the 4th Station of the Way of the Cross. All subsequent events pertaining to the Work are inextricably linked with Her Person…
Therefore, a place next to Her Throne in Jasna Góra was chosen for the Jubilee Meeting – the place so dear to the Polish hearts…
The members of the “Comunità Regina della Pace” Association met there from 10 to 12 May 2019 in order to give thanks for the many great graces received through Mary’s powerful intercession and to entrust the future of the Work to Her Motherly care.
The program included both, spiritual and working time. On Friday evening we prayed together before Our Lady of Jasna Góra and the next day began with a solemn Eucharist in the same Chapel. The Holy Mass was presided over by the Most Rev. Fr. Mariusz Tabulski OSPPE, the Definitor General of Pauline Fathers. Rev. Stanislaw Skuza SAC and Rev. Miroslaw Prasek COr, the Ecclesiastical Assistant of the Association, concelebrated.
Afterwards, we adored the Blessed Sacrament for peace in the world. That day, Jesus was exposed in one of the side-chapels of Jasna Góra Basilica, in a monstrance that is destined for a new Center of Prayer for Peace in Burkina Faso. Moreover, in the program of the meeting, there were: a thought- provoking conference on the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament delivered by Rev. Miroslaw Prasek COr, as well as touching testimonies of power of prayer for peace and making pilgrimages for this intention.
In the working part of the meeting, a very constructive presentation on the strategies of development of the Work of the “12 Stars”was given by Ms. Beata Piekutowska from Niepokalanów. We also had a chance to discuss the future perspectives of the Work .
The needs and ideas are many, that is why we trust that our Patroness will continue supporting us, opening by Her powerful intercession new ways to places where She desires to ignite the fire of Eucharistic adoration…
Grateful for all we have received so far, strengthened by Mary’s presence and by the testimonies of power of prayer for peace, we wish that the Work may continue to grow for the glory of God and for the good of all mankind.
We also wish to give thanks to all those who have supported and continue supporting the Work in any way. May our Blessed Mother keep you and your families under Her Motherly Mantle and obtain from Her Son the graces that you are in need of. God bless you!
