Today is the Feast of Our Lady of the Gate of Dawn

Behold the Lily, Ungilded

As a child, you miraculously restored me to health,
(When my tearful mother placed me under your protection, I raised my dead eyelids
And I could immediately walk barefoot to the threshold of your shrine
Coming to thank God for restoring my life.)”

-from the epic poem “Pan Tadeusz” by Adam Mickiewicz
