On Friday, November 28, in Mundelein, Illinois, the Ocean to Ocean pilgrimage team brought our icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa to the National Shrine of Fr. Maximilian Kolbe. A group of faithful men from Our Lady of Mercy Parish in Chicago, Illinois lovingly brought the icon into the Shrine and offered special prayers seeking the intercession of Fr. Maximilian Kolbe for our upcoming trip to Mexico.
Originally from Mexico, these men were delighted to know that the famous icon will be traveling to the land of their birth to defend human life, love, faith and family. With the promotion of Our Lady of Czestochowa, may the devotion to her faithful son Fr. Maximilian increase as well, throughout the world.
