The Sunday Morning with the Poles in Móstoles

On Sunday morning, February 24th, the meeting with the Czestochowa Icon was expected by the Polish Community in Mostoles. It is a vast Spanish town, known for the historical fact, that in 1808 the Mayors of Mostoles declared war against Napeoleon.

The Poles, with their pastor father Andrzej Sobczyk, gathered at the church of Our Lady of Joy in Mostoles. It houses the Polish Mission run by the Priests of Christ (the Community of Christ for the Polish People Abroad), of the Province of Our Lady of Czestochowa in France and Spain.

The Poles were waiting with posters in two languages: in Spanish and in Polish: “The Virgin Mary, whereever you are, you defend life”. You could immediately notice a group of Polish people in national costumes. There were about 350 people in the church. The first Holy Mass was celebrated in Polish and the next three ones in Spanish. Also the prayers in the afternoon were led in both languages.
