September 12
In the Diocese of Rzeszów
OUR LADY of RZESZÓW
Obligatory memorial

The cult of the benevolent figure of Mary with Child known as Our Lady of Rzeszów dates back to the beginning of the 16th century when Mary appeared to an inhabitant of Rzeszów – Jakub Ado. Since 1629 Our Lady of Rzeszów has been worshipped in the sanctuary taken care of by the Bernardines, and the cult was ceremoniously accepted in 1763, when the Archbishop of Lviv Wacław Sierakowski adorned the figure with papal crowns. In 1998 Our Lady of Rzeszów was named the patroness saint of the town of Rzeszów. She is worshipped in the town and the diocese as the Protector and Advocate of Families.

Common of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

CONCLUDING PRAYER

O God,
you made the Rzeszów sanctuary filled with praises of the Immaculate Mother of your Son,
we beg you to make the faithful who worship her, through her intercession, be worthy of your generous gifts.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

Or:

O Almighty God,
your Son, dying on the altar of the cross, gave us the Most Blessed Virgin Mary as our Mother,
grant that we may be filled with comfort while we take refuge with hope beneath her mercy and call her maternal name.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.
