Intercession of Blessed Stanislaus Papczyński

During his lifetime, Fr. Stanislaus Papczyński was regarded by many as a special intercessor before God. Looking at this holy life, permeated with prayer, penance, and the thirst to know God’s will, they became convinced of finding in him an efficient intercessor before God. They often asked him to pray for their intentions, especially in the case of seriously ill people, and they obtained help. According to witnesses’ testimonies, there were even instances of resurrection of dead children during Holy Masses celebrated by Fr. Papczyński.

Numerous graces obtained by people who came to pray at Bl. Stanislaus’s tomb brought him the title of “renowned for miracles.” The Marian Founder was thus described by the Coronation Diet of King Stanislaus Poniatowski in 1764, in its petition to the Holy See for his beatification.

And this hasn’t changed during the past three centuries! In times favorable for the faith in Poland and Europe or in times of persecutions; when his tomb was easily accessible to the faithful or when it remained locked up and deserted, streams of unusual graces kept flowing down on those who recurred to his intercession. What is more, during the last decade one could easily notice the growing devotion to Bl. Stanislaus not only in Poland, but also on the American continent and in Africa.

Testimonies coming from different parts of the world suggest that particular prayerful help was given by Bl. Stanislaus to childless families, women with troubled pregnancy, addicts, dysfunctional families, and children and youth with learning disabilities.

We trust that as a new Blessed, Fr. Stanislaus, always so sensitive to human misery, will become our effective intercessor before God.
