CZĘSTOCHOWA, Poland, June 18, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Hundreds of Polish Catholics blocked the street to their nation’s holiest shrine as an LGBT march approached a children’s rosary procession.

The 20th Pilgrimage of the Children’s Backyard Rosary Circles (“XX Pielgrzymka Podwórkowych Kół Różańcowych Dzieci”) to the Shrine of Jasna Góra in Częstochowa took place without incident, thanks to police and hundreds of adults who separated the devotional event from the famous city’s second LGBT “Pride March.”

According to Polish website Polonia Christiana, there were fears that the pro-homosexual demonstration would invade the sanctuary of Jasna Góra, where the icon of the Black Madonna of Częstochowa is housed. A group calling itself the Men’s Defence of Jasna Góra (Męska Obrona Jasnej Góry) was one among other groups standing bodily in the paths to the shrine while police lined the marchers’ official route, keeping them far from the children’s event.

Polonia Christiana reported that the ordinary of Częstochowa, Archbishop Wacław Depo, had judged the city’s second LGBT parade to be a “deliberate provocation aimed at the children in the whole of Catholic Poland.”

The website also mentioned that the LGBT marchers profaned the image of Our Lady of Częstochowa by depicting her with a rainbow for a halo and also carried banners combining the national symbol of the eagle with the “pride” flag.

According to Polonia Christiana, the LGBT marchers shouted “Rainbow, not national, Poland,” “Sport, health, homosexuality,” and “Colorful Częstochowa.”
