Feast of Our Lady of Vilnius

"As by miracle thou didst restore me to health in my childhood when, offered by my weeping mother to thy protection,
I raised my dead eyelids, and could straightway walk to the threshold of thy shrine to thank God for the life returned me"

from "Pan Tadeusz" by Adam Mickiewicz

Tomorrow, November 22, the parishioners of Our Lady of Vilnius will celebrate the feast of our Patroness. Those that can will gather, first at St. Patrick's Cathedral, later on the steps of our beloved church on Broome Street.

Though we are apart, we will always be together in Christ and in the immaculate heart of our Patron and Protector, the Blessed Virgin Mary.
