Accompanying Our Lady

For four days the Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa visited the parish of El Sagrario. It is located in the Historic Center of the Ecuadorian capital and is a part of the whole of the Catedral Primada complex. It seems more like an independent church than an attached chapel, both because of its size and because of its importance for the people of Quito.

The Icon was present during the most important activities of the parish, such as the recitation of the holy rosary and the celebration of the Eucharist. The parish groups made a lot of effort to accompany our Mother, as the Brotherhood of the Holy Sacrament, the Living Tabernacles and the Young Catechists.

The church has the tradition of staying open from early morning until 7pm, since as its name indicates here is continuous adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. The parish priest, Fr. Ramiro Rodriguez indicated that during the visit of Our Lady there was an increase in confessions, since many people came to the church to contemplate the Icon.

The most beautiful thing was the pilgrimage that took place on the last day, since about 100 people went to the church of San Blas in procession to transfer the Icon. During an hour procession  they were praying the holy rosary and singing Marian songs, as well as publicly professing the Catholic faith in the company of the Mother of our Savior.
