Our Lady Patiently Listening in Rokitno

Theme: Our Lady Patiently Listening
From: Marian Sanctuary in Rokitno, Poland
Year: 2005

The town of Rokitno (Lubusz Voivodeship in Poland) is known for its Marian Sanctuary visited by many pilgrims who are willing to see the miraculous picture Our Lady Patiently Listening (painted at the beginning of 16th century on a piece of linden tree). The right ear of Holy Mary is uncovered which symbolically shows she is ready to hear the people's requests.

The construction of the church, which is a basilica also, started in 1705. Mum and myself visited the place in 2005 - both the architecture and the interior decorations of the basilica are really interesting and quite pretty and worth seeing.

You can watch the inside of hte church here - just click on the digits below the first picture.
