Poland: Maria Regina Apium

In a beekeepers pilgrimage, going on 6 - 7 December at Jasna Gora, prayed about two thousand people of Polish and beekeepers delegations from Belarus, Germany and Slovakia. 

For the first time beekeepers brought with them an oil painting depicting Mary, styled Queen of the Bees: Maria Regina Apium. 

In 2002 the picture was painted by Mark Szymanski, an artist from the Green Mountains.

The presentation was dedicated by Bishop Joseph Pazdur in the basilica of Olesnica on September 17, 2004, at 22 days beekeeping nationwide. Hoping this is the beginning of the cult of Our Lady, the Queen of the bees.
