I don’t know how many people heard about this but apparently few days ago somebody following all the recent riots, burnt a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary. I don’t know why, but whatever reason it was, this act was very much against God and the Mother of God. How much hate has to be in a person that decided to that?
When I have seen this picture I went in my mind to Golgotha. On the top of this hill Blessed Virgin Mary witnessed the biggest crime of humanity. Her Son, Jesus Christ, true God and true man was crucified to save every person that will believe in him. Two thousand years later she is witnessing this truth again. This time she does it different way. This time Satan is taking an action against her and her children. The One that gave birth to the Son of God has to witness Jesus again. It was under the cross, when Jesus Christ gave her as our mother. Today she is a martyr of her motherhood, because of her love. What child would destroy own mother? Only the one that is possessed by Satan, rejecting love in the name of evil. How many times she came to us with tears asking for our repentance, for returning to God? Maybe the power of Satan is so huge that now she has to sacrifice herself and her images.
We have seen in the history terrible things against faith, but there is one very special period of time when an evil targeted God and Blessed Virgin Mary with amazing power. It was time of communism. It was June 22nd 1966 when the most important image of Blessed Virgin Mary in Poland was arrested by communist government during a pilgrimage of her Image between parishes. But this wasn’t end. September 2nd 1966 they arrested the Image again and placed in Jasna Góra with no permission to leave for next six years. The same time all bishops encouraged people to pray and fast to protect Poland from any evil. It took 24 years with the help of the Blessed Virgin Mary to get rid of communism. Satan hates our Blessed Mather. He knows that with her help he doesn’t have any chance. Her silent testimonial about her Son is more powerful than any riots and protests. She comes to us the same way as she came to the servants at the wedding in Canna of Galilee and says the same words: Do whatever my Son asks you to do.
O most Holy Virgin, immaculate in body and spirit, look kindly on us as we implore your powerful intercessions.
