You are visiting the pages on
which we would like to acquaint you with the past and present of a place
of pilgrimage, not far from Zlaté Hory in the Czech Republic, dedicated
Our Lady, Help of Christians and
Protector of Life.
The pilgrim church, in the quiet
forests near Zlaté Hory, is not only a
traditional place of pilgrimage, but a memorial site to remind people all
over the world they cannot be happy and will not live in peace if they do
not protect and respect human life from its conception to natural death.
The respect for life is
connected to the protection of nature that the Creator gave to man.
Prayers for bringing the nations nearer to one another; for life in peace
and mutual understanding, are said at this Pilgrimage Site.
Maria Hilf was built in the beginning of the 19th Century to
honour the Virgin Mary. During the Totalitarian Regime, it was bulldozed.
In 1995, it was rebuilt and revived - all that thanks to the prayers,
deeds and gifts of the faithful, both in our country and abroad.
