An early 20th century photograph of the interior of the chapel of Our Lady of Częstochowa, Poland.
Note the great number of silver votive offering placed on and around the altar. These are a testimony of the people’s devotion to Mary and of their belief in the miraculous powers of her image.
The miraculous image of the Holy Family venerated in the basilica of the Assumption and St Joseph in Kalisz, Poland.
Because of the city’s devotion to the Holy Family, and more particularly St Joseph, Kalisz is often referred to as the Polish Nazareth.
