MAY 3rd IS THE FEAST of Our Lady, Queen of the Crown of Poland. The Virgin Mary, always dear to the Polish people is honored especially in the month of May which is dedicated to her. There are special ceremonies, processions, coronations, and prayers for this month. Her altars and shrines, both indoors and outdoors are beautifully decorated and tended. It is a Polish family custom to set up a shrine to Mary in the home or garden and of keeping fresh flowers and candles around it as a sign of petition and in gratitude for Our Lady’s prayers.
In 1655 Poland was attacked and nearly crushed by Swedish, Turkish, German and Cossack armies. The only stronghold was the great monastery of Our Lady of Czestochowa on Jasna Gora. After the miraculous defense of Czestochowa and the expulsion of the enemy, King John II Casimir made a solemn vow to the Virgin Mary proclaiming her as the QUEEN OF THE POLISH CROWN: “Great Mother of God made Man, most Holy Virgin, I, King John Casimir, lie prostrate at your feet. I take you as my patron and the Queen of my nations and my Kingdom, commending my troops and people of all estates to your special care and protection.”
It is interesting to note that from the date of this vow every Polish king made a holy pilgrimage to Częstochowa to pray before the miraculous icon of Our Lady of Jasna Gora immediately after their coronation – all, that is, except for the unfortunate last king of Poland who seemed to ignore the custom, and who eventually lost his crown when Poland lost her freedom.
MAY 3rd IS THE DAY OF THE GREAT Polish Constitution called simply the Constitution of May 3rd (1791). It was the first democratic constitution in Europe which won the admiration of the world with its spirit of freedom, reform and brotherhood. Unfortunately democracy was seen as a threat to the royalty who surrounded Poland and soon they banded together to crush this noble effort. Austria, Germany and Russia formed an “Unholy Alliance” in order to eliminate Poland and democracy from the map of Europe. Poland might have survived a war of one or maybe even two fronts but three armies proved too much for even the best of troops and Poland ceased to exist officially for almost 100 years on June 25, 1795.
MAY 4th IS THE FEAST of Bd. Michael Giedroyc who died in 1485. He was a holy monk who lived in the monastery of Our Lady of Metro at Kraków. He lived a life of heroic simplicity and mortification. His life was one of continual prayer and sacrifice. He lived in a cell so small that he could scarcely lie down, leaving only to go to church.
His austerities were hard but he never relaxed them in illness or in his old age. He was consoled by Jesus who spoke to him from a crucifix and he also had the gifts of miracles and prophecy.
MAY 4th IS THE FEAST of St. Florian, the early Christian martyr and the patron of the city of Krakow. St. Florian was an officer of the Roman army who suffered death for his faith in 304. He was cruelly tortured, being twice scourged, skinned alive and then drowned.
In 1138 Pope Lucius III gave the relics of St. Florian to King Casimir for the city of Krakow (then the capital of Poland). Many miracles of healings are attributed to his intercession and St. Florian is invoked as a powerful protector of those in danger from fire or water. In addition to being the patron of Krakow, St. Florian is also the patron of firemen everywhere.
MAY DEVOTIONS in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary will take place Sunday, May 7th at 2:00 p.m. Benediction and the Holy Rosary will be included.
THE MAY CROWNING of the Blessed Virgin Mary will take place at the 10:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday, May 7th.

Fatima Vision Reminds Us of St. Joseph’s Patronage
Model of fatherhood linked to Marian apparitions.
With the 100th Anniversary of Fatima, many people have heard about the “Miracle of the Sun” in the October 1917 apparition. But few realize that St. Joseph appeared in that vision.
Servant of God Lucia Santos, the longest living visionary of Fatima, described the blessed appearance in her Memoirs: “After Our Lady had disappeared into the immense distance of the firmament, we beheld St. Joseph with the Child Jesus and Our Lady robed in white with a blue mantle, beside the sun. St. Joseph and the Child Jesus seemed to bless the world, for they traced the Sign of the Cross with their hands.”
“It reiterates the importance of St. Joseph’s role within the Church,” explained Mike Wick, executive director of the Institute on Religious Life, of St. Joseph’s appearance. As a husband and father, Wick finds that St. Joseph’s presence in the apparition “says so much for our world today. He’s the silent giant, the forgotten friend who is constantly present.”
In Corcoran, Minnesota, Brian Holt looks to St. Joseph as a model for being a husband and father. He and his wife, Marylou, have eight children ranging in age from 8 to 26.
“My favorite daily prayer for years before work is the ‘Workman’s Prayer to St. Joseph,’” Holt said, adding that the family also prays the Rosary ahead of home-schooling each day.
Holt has been trying to follow Joseph’s saintly example when teaching work skills to his children, too. For this year’s winter project, he worked with three of his sons in remodeling a part of their home. “I’m teaching them skills so that when they’re heads of their own families, they can take care of themselves,” explained Holt, who builds furniture, too. “The skills, the health, and motivation comes from God. The ability to serve comes from God. To have work to do is a blessing.”
Wick said his favorite title for Joseph is “patron of the present moment” — to live the present moment taking on the grace God gives you to fulfill the duty and the vocation you’re called, “quietly and subtly as Joseph did.”
The Holy Family’s presence at the last Fatima apparition is a timely reminder for today’s families, believes Wick. “We need this today in families — the reflection of what the Church is to be, the family of God. Joseph being head of the Holy Family gives us great instruction to what God’s plan is to be.”
“St. Joseph was teaching and reflecting the image of the fatherhood of God” in his role as head of the Holy Family, Wick added.
Thus, Fatima, for all of its other meanings, also is a reminder of the importance of fatherhood.
“The fatherhood of St. Joseph, as with all human fathers, is a reflection in a creature of the fatherhood of God the Father,” emphasized Msgr. Joseph Cirrincione in his 1989 booklet St. Joseph, Fatima and Fatherhood. “[T]he vision of St. Joseph and the Infant Jesus blessing the world, with Mary by the side of the sun, which has not left its place, is God’s assurance that although man may reject him, God will never reject man.”
When the peaceful family scene is disrupted by the sun’s gyrations during the Miracle of the Sun, Msgr. Cirrincione sees “an ominous foreshadowing of the consequences for the world, which are sure to be felt if the true fatherhood of God and the traditional strong role of the father of the family are rejected by mankind.”
He added: “The Miracle of the Sun represents not so much a threat of evils to come as it does a foreshadowing of the dethronement of God the Father and an intimation of the appalling consequences to follow.”
Msgr. Cirrincione explained, “Since human fatherhood, as a reflection of the fatherhood of God, was designed to be the pillar of the family, the disappearance of esteem for fatherhood has led to the collapse of that pillar and to the disintegration of the family.” Wick agreed: “The presence of Joseph especially at Fatima is a reminder God the Father is looking for us, waiting for us to return to the Lord. Joseph, just like Mary, plays the part of the missionary.”
Looking to St. Joseph, the patron of the universal Church, is key for his March feast day and beyond — as Pope Leo XIII reminded the faithful.
Pope Leo XIII consecrated October to Our Lady of the Rosary — the title Mary would later call herself at Fatima — and in his 1889 encyclical Quamquam Pluries (Devotion to St. Joseph), Pope Leo asked “for the Christian people continually to invoke, with great piety and trust, together with the Virgin Mother of God, her chaste Spouse, the Blessed Joseph.”
Because it was of “high importance that the devotion to St. Joseph” was included in the daily practices of Catholics, Leo prescribed and provided a prayer to St. Joseph to be recited after the Rosary during October.
Keeping the holy example of St. Joseph in mind is a key part of Catholic devotion.
As Pope Leo wrote: “The Blessed Patriarch looks upon the multitude of Christians who make up the Church as confided specially to his trust – this limitless family spread over the
earth, over which, because he is the spouse of Mary and that he was reputed the father of Jesus Christ, he holds, as it were, a paternal authority.
“It is, then, natural and worthy that as the Blessed Joseph ministered to all the needs of the family at Nazareth and girt it about with his protection, he should now cover with the cloak of his heavenly patronage and defend the Church of Jesus Christ.”
In his book True Story of Fatima, Father John DeMarchi believes similarly, stating, “Our Lord did not come to destroy, but to save. He saved the world that day through the blessing of good St. Joseph and the love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary for her children on earth.” – http://www.ncregister.com
