The fifth anniversary of canonization of St. Jadwiga
The year 2002 is the year when the
QJF started to develop its activities. In that time we had rather a small
financial resources and the form of our activities started to have the ().
During that time we were concentrated on elaboration a unique profile of
activities of QJF. We hoped that Primate J. Glemp
and Cardinal Macharski were personally involved
in the organization of the celebration of the 5th anniversary of Queen Jadwiga
canonization. We couldn’t believe that in such a short period of time, from
that moment when She was canonized, She would be forgotten in so ‘well
planed’ way. We were sure that in the day 8 June there was a very solemn
celebration in Krakow. Forgetting about
the Queen Jadwiga was coincident with very rapid
development of the workers Lagiewniki. In that
context there is difficult to remove the memory of times when we were
persuaded to believe that Krakow is
situated close to Nowa Huta.
The very popular song that we had to learn “the song about the new Huta’ was introduced to disturb longings of the polish
heart for the marvellousness of the royal town. This is difficult to
believe in the blind coincidence taken into account context of the event in
and in other countries all over the world. After many years of experience
we learned haw big role in the Catholic Church play the so called ‘apostles
of the social justice’.
As it was said at the
beginning we would like to participate in the 5th anniversary of Queen Jadwiga
canonization, having in mind the fact that in Krakow
there is a big festive. Because the day 8 June was so close we managed only
to send the bouquet red roses by the Flower Company.
