Global Analysis from the European Perspective. Preparing for the world of tomorrow




Poland’s borders entrusted to Rosary Prayer

It is sometimes claimed in the 80ies Poland delivered a death blow to the Soviet system that was in place then in central Europe. At that time the spark was struck by a religious event: the visit by the Polish pope, John Paul II, to his homeland. Today another religious event has attracted hundreds of thousands of people. Will Poland do the same to the EU system?

About a hundred people at the foot of the Karkonosze Mountains in south-western Poland. The border with Czechia is just a kilometer away, across the rocky crests. A group of people, young and old, men and women, families and singles, of all professions and walks of life are praying the rosary, repeating two hundred times Hail Mary, interwoven with Our Father and interspersed with short meditative texts. The group is headed by a professional female tourist guide. It all takes up full two hours, out there, in a romantic setting of a forest, with towering mountains.

It’s not an isolated group. There are approximately four thousand of them around Poland, posted along the 3.500-kilometer-long Polish border, gathering altogether at least one million Catholic men, women and children, which is a modest estimate, given by the mass media not particularly close to the Catholic Church. The prayer action had long been promoted by well-known celebrities from the world of sports, entertainment, and politics who also take part in it. Poland’s Prime Minister Beata Szydło, whose son is a priest, expressed her support for the action by way of Twitter. People pray in the open, in churches and chaplets, on mountain tops, on the beaches and on boards of boats and ships.


The map retrieved from the rozaniecdogranic.pl/mapa website, showing the gathering points for people wanting to participate in the rosary pray. Participants were asked to zoom in on the selected place on the border and register. The same website features well-known actors and journalists advocating the whole idea.

What are they praying for? They praying for Poland and the world. Why are they posted along the borderline? They are posted along the borderline to request the heavenly powers that they protect their country. What do they want to be protected against?

The official purpose of the prayer is to make Poland free of the world’s ills: terrorism, war and moral decay which includes rampant abortion, the destruction of the family and the attack on the sex roles in society. The underlying purpose, expressed in the fact that the prayer groups gathered along the borders, is that Poland be spared the fate of other European countries that are being flooded by aliens and are experiencing ethnic replacement and the resultant social turmoil.

The Western and Polish leftist mainstream media do not like it. They call the event ‘controversial’,1)Poland Catholics Pray Along Border in Controversial Event Seen as Anti-Muslim, Newsweek 2017-10-07; Poland Catholics hold controversial prayer day on borders, BBC 2017-10-07.depicting its participants as Islamophobes,2)150.000 Katholiken beten an Polens Grenze, Welt 2017-10-07; Umstrittene “Rosenkranz”- Aktion in Polen, tagesschau.de 2017-10-07. so much so that the event took place on October 7th, on the anniversary of the Battle of Lepanto of 1571, where the Holy League of Christian nations destroyed the Ottoman fleet threatening Europe.3)Poles also remember the Battle of Vienna of 1683, when this European capital was saved by the relief troops led by Polish King Jan Sobieski; in the internet the meme is doing the rounds which says in Polish: When I was King, we used to beat the shit out of the Muslim hordes (rather than provide them with benefits).The non-mainstream media express their approval and envy.4)Grenzschutz mit dem Rosenkranz, Civitas Institute 2017-09-26; Hundreds of thousands pray rosary at Polish border, Catholic Herald 2017-10-08.

The Polish people seem to have a different idea of what their country should look like and they are no enthusiasts of ethnic enrichment being pushed upon them by the European Union. The West gets excited when a bunch of people gather in Moscow to allegedly protest President Putin’s policy, yet looking condescendingly on Poles when they gather by the thousands. In 1956 Hungary, in 1970 Czechoslovakia and in 1980 Poland threw down the gauntlet to the soviet system in central Europe. will it be again the triumvirate of Poland, Czechia plus Slovakia, and Hungary (all of them resisting the EU ethnic replacement) that will bring about the demise of the EU system?
