The much revered Icon of Our Lady of Jasna Gora,
(The Black Madonna), has been credited with
numerous miracles and healings – both of a spiritual
and physical nature. 
A specially consecrated replica of this Icon, is now
travelling on HLI’s Ocean to Ocean Tour
in defence of life and family,
and will be in Ottawa, on March 18th and 19th, 2014.
For many of us this will be a
‘once in a lifetime opportunity’ to Venerate the Icon.
Please join us as we welcome Our Lady and ask for
Her guidance and protection for Canada.

You are encouraged to accompany Her on
 this leg of Her journey.
Spend this time with Her as She joins her Husband,
on his Feast Day, to intercede with us for Canada
(after all, who better to intercede for us
since St. Joseph is our Country’s and, our City’s Patron)
as we ‘lift up’ our Nation to our Heavenly Father,
through the Intercession of Jesus*.
Come and pray with us, that our Nation
will become a God-fearing one, whose Laws are
in accordance with the Word of God -
a Country which we will be proud to leave as an
 Inheritance for our children, grandchildren and
all of our descendants!
For the Word of God says in 2 Chron. 7:14
If my people who are called by My name
 will humble themselves, and pray,
and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from Heaven,
and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
*Consequently, He is able also to save to the uttermost
those who draw near to God through Him,
since He always lives to make intercession
  for them." Heb. 7:25

Please join us in praying for Canada daily -
for an end to abortion, for the protection of Life, from birth to natural death and for the protection of Families.

Czestochowa Icon - the complete Fr Peter West Homily 
January 18, 2014  

YouTube Video

This Novena was said by St. Pio daily, for all who asked for his prayers.
In the Movie - 'Pope John Paul II', after the Pope had prayed for a friend who had cancer, and she had been healed, she thanked him. 
He told her that prayers are answered, (may not be his exact words, but the message is correct), especially when Padre Pio intercedes.
As you pray this Novena, please ask for the intercession of St. Pio.
