Church and Monastery of Plock

The towering construction of the neo-Gothic old-catholic church and monastery of the Mariavites built in 1911 -- 1914 boldly stands out in the Płock panorama. It is the center of the Polish Mariavite movement. The church plays a role of the cathedral church. In the basement, there are the tombs of Feliksa Kozłowska, the founder of the Mariavite movement and the first Mariavite bishops. Every year on August 15th pilgrims from all over Poland come to the Płock sanctuary.

All Souls Day ~Lux Aeterna/In paradisum

Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine,
cum sanctis tuis in aeternum,
quia pius es.
Requiem aeternum dona eis, Domine,
et Lux perpetua luceat eis,
cum Sanctus tuis in aeternum,
quia pius es.
Requistcat In Pace
Let eternal light shine on them, Lord,
as with Your saints in eternity,
because You are merciful.
Grant them eternal rest, Lord,
and let perpetual light shine on them,
as with Your saints in eternity,
because You are merciful.
May they Rest In Peace
In Paradisum
In paradisum deducant te Angeli; in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres, et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Ierusalem.-
May angels lead you into Paradise; may the martyrs receive you at your coming and lead you to the holy city of Jerusalem. May a choir of angels receive you, and with Lazarus, who once was poor, may you have eternal rest.
