Today I unite myself with the thousands of pilgrims who gather at Jasna Góra together with the Polish Episcopate to entrust themselves, families, the nation, and all humanity to her motherly protection, Pope Francis said in greetings to Poles during today’s general audience. The Holy Father spoke from the Library of the Vatican Apostolic Palace.
We publish the full content of greetings:
“I cordially greet all Poles. Dear brothers and sisters, today the Church in Poland is celebrating the Black Madonna of Częstochowa. With a vivid memory in my heart of my visit to this Shrine, four years ago, on the occasion of World Youth Day, I unite today with the thousands of pilgrims who gather there together with the Polish Episcopate to entrust myself, families, the nation and all humanity to her motherly care. Pray to the Blessed Mother that she may intercede for all of us, and especially for those who suffer in various ways from the pandemic, and may she bring them comfort. Please pray for me too. God bless you!”
