On the Solemnity of Pentecost, gathered during the main Mass. at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Licheń, they thanked for the gifts of the Holy Spirit received during the sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation, and thanked mothers during the Pilgrimage of Mothers to Our Lady of Licheń.
Mother's Day at the Mother's House, i.e. the nationwide pilgrimage of mothers to Our Lady of Lichen, became an occasion for heartfelt prayer for all mothers.
- "Thank you, mother" - this is how we want to notice our own mothers today, first of all with a word of thanks - at the beginning of the homily, the curator of the Lichen shrine expressed his gratitude to the mothers who were called to motherhood, but long for their longed-for child; to those who have a new life under their hearts, especially when it is threatened; mothers who defend their lives despite the child's illness or difficult circumstances. Thanked for love and patience in converting mothers whose children depart from God; those who have come out of addiction or are raising children on their own. He also drew attention to religious sisters who, in their spiritual motherhood, embrace with prayer all they meet on the way of their vocation. - Today, when we invoke the Holy Spirit, we want to emphasize something extremely important: we need God and His Spirit, courage and unity, because we are powerless ourselves - emphasized Fr. Kumala. - Today, unity is at stake. Between the lack of consent and commitment to the common good. Maybe because we have forgotten about the Holy Spirit? - prompted the curator of the sanctuary to reflect, stressing that when we call out to the Holy Spirit, we are calling for love and forgiveness towards ourselves. - Let us not say that we are weak, but let us invoke the Holy Spirit.
After the liturgy, Mum's words brought the gifts in a procession to the altar, and before God's blessing and sending a mother's representative entrusted her mothers with the protection of Our Lady of Licheń.
