   Your Franciscans

   The Franciscans from the Province of Assumption of Virgin Mary in Poland

   (Translated by: Ewa Turzańska)

   A prayer of entrust the Order to the Most Holy Virgin, the Immaculate Conception, patroness of our Order In the spirit of the Poverello of Assisi, who came to this holy place 800 years ago to ask for "wisdom and discernment", so do we, Friars Minor of the third Millenium, ask the intercession of Mary on our way towards the "graces of the origins" so that our Order may continue to open up paths toward the future.
   To you Mary, Mother of Jesus and of us all, we entrust the entire Order of the Friars Minor, followers of Francis. Welcome us into your motherly heart, so that we may persevere in the Franciscan vocation and always grow in the "spirit of the Lord and his holy operation".

   To you Mary, Mother of Jesus and of us all, we address our prayer for all of our missionary brothers, so that with the strength of the Franciscan martyrs, they may announce the good news of salvation to the whole world.

   To you Mary, Mother of Jesus and of us all, we commend our old and sick brothers. Embrace them and give them the courage to imitate the crucified Christ.

   To you Mary, Mother of Jesus and of us all, we commend our brothers who have preceded us to the house of the Father. We thank you for their example of Franciscan life and their commitment to construct the Kingdom of God.

   To you Mary, Mother of Jesus and of us all, we present our infidelities in the hour of living "according to the Gospel" and we ask you the necessary strength to continue to be faithful to the "form of life" transmitted to us by "the infinitely small man".

   To you Mary, Mother of Jesus and of us all, to your intercession and protection we entrust ourselves so that we be aware that the responsibility of being a Friar Minor needs your motherly presence.

   Help us to be modest and peaceful
   Messengers of justice and love,
   Daring interpreters of the signs of the times
   New and happy men
   Authentic witnesses of the Gospel
   Open to modern man.
   To you Mary, Immaculate Virgin, we offer these roses, sign of our love and of our fidelity towards you placing in your hands the future of our charism. Amen

   św. Maria Anna od Jezusa Paredes y Flores
   dziewica z III Zakonu (1618-1645)

   Urodziła się 31 X 1618 roku w Quito w Ekwadorze. Szybko została osierocona. Jej wychowaniem zajęła się starsza siostra. Rodzina chciała, aby wstąpiła do klasztoru Franciszkanek, ale ona wybrała szeregi III Zakonu św. Franciszka. Wiodła życie w skupieniu na osobności, oddawała się kontemplacji i umartwieniu. Zmarła 26 V 1645 roku.
   Papież Pius XII kanonizował ją 9 VII 1950 roku.
   Boże, Ty sprawiłeś, że św. Maria Anna od Jezusa mimo pokus tego świata przez dziewiczą czystość i nieustanną pokutę zakwitła jak lilia pośród cierni, spraw przez jej zasługi i wstawiennictwo, abyśmy zerwali z grzechem i gorliwie dążyli do doskonałości. Przez Chrystusa, Pana naszego. Amen.
