Ecclesia Militans - Church Militant


An Eucharistic procession during the battle of  Jasna Gora (Luminous Mount), which ended with the miraculously saving of the Jasna Gora monastery during a siege that took place at the time of The Deluge, a 17th century Swedish, heretic invasion on Poland.

Excerpt for the movie 'Potop'.

Potop is a great film, based on "The Deluge" by Henryk Sienkiewicz. Sienkiewicz is perhaps most famous for his novel "Quo vadis" but his novels of Catholic Poland are incredible.

The monks are from the Order of saint Paul the first hermit. Ordo sancti Pauli primi eremitae. This summer - i'm entering their novitiate :)
