Poland's third 'window of life' opened in Czestochowa

 A 'Window of Life of Blessed Edmund Bojanowski' was inaugurated in Czestochowa during the Feast of the Holy Family of Nazareth, by Archbishop Stanislaw Nowak of Czestochowa, the Archdiocesan Caritas, and the Sisters of the Congregation of Servants of the Immaculate Conception of the Mother of God. The window is a place where place newborn babies that they cannot care for.

The 'Window of Life' opened in Czestochowa is the third window in Poland, following those in Krakow and Warsaw. Thanks to this work, many newborns will be saved, offering mothers the possibility of leaving their children, while remaining anonymous, in a house run by the Sisters of Congregation of Servants of the Immaculate Conception of the Mother of God.

"It is a place where the women who do not want to or cannot provide for their children, can leave them, in utter discretion, in order to find a family that can welcome them into their home," Fr Stanislaw Ilczyk, Director of Caritas for the Archdiocese of Czestochowa, told Fides.

"The 'Window of Life of Blessed Edmund Bojanowski' is a sign of hope for newborn children. It is also a means of using goodness and mercy to fight abortion. In Poland, experts say that abortion has claimed the lives of nearly 20 million children in the past several years. The 'Window of Life' in Czestochowa is, therefore, the defense of human life," Archbishop Nowak of Czestochowa said.
