The Pilgrim Icon of Czestochowa spent 24 hours with the Servants of the Home of Mother. Sister Paqui with a group of sisters and missionaries had attended the celebration mass on Monday 26 in Our Lady of Czestochowa parish, and she had asked in pray to have the Icon at their home just one day.
Great was her surprise when the pilgrimage coordinator in Guayaquil approached her to ask if she wanted the visit of the Icon. Sister Paqui was asking for the next day, because Spanish missionaries were traveling back to their country right away, and they planned to organize a vigil Tuesday night. The pilgrimage coordinator was thinking about a future date, but with the help of God it was possible to realize the sister's wish.
Because the nights are a bit cool at this time of year, they placed the Icon in the inner courtyard and with candlelight, the 7 Spanish sisters, the 18 young girls from Guayaquil and the 12 Spanish missionaries, sang beautiful Marian songs until late at night. “We were doing Mariana cantata and praying to Our Mother. It was a beautiful time. The girls from Spain experienced the love of Our Mother in detail. She came to spend their last night in Guayaquil with them”, commented Sister Paqui.
