Basilica of the Virgin Mary - Rajecka Lesna
Slovakia

Základný kameň Baziliky Narodenia Panny Márie v Rajeckej Lesnej bol položený v máji roku 1864, kedy sa chrám začal aj stavať. O dva roky neskôr 27. mája 1866 na sviatok Zoslania Ducha Svätého bol kostol posvätený a pri tejto príležitosti bola prenesená milostivá socha Panny Márie zo starého kostola Kráľovnej Anjelov z prvej polovice 15. storočia do nového kostola. Jednoloďový neogotický chrám je postavený na pôdoryse obráteného kríža. Hlavné rameno je dlhé 28 metrov, priečne rameno je široké 20 metrov. Chrám je zasvätený Narodeniu Panny Márie. Na hlavnom oltári, ktorý má tri výklenky, stojí v prostrednom socha Panny Márie, ktorú vyhotovil neznámy rezbár okolo roku 1498. Socha je vysoká 145 cm. V bočných výklenkoch sú sochy anjelov. V bočných ramenách kostola je napravo oltár sv. Jozefa a naľavo je oltár sv. Anny. Na strope chrámu sú maľby, ktoré znázorňujú tajomstvá posv. ruženca. Hranolová veža má ihlanovú strechu, vo veži sú štyri zvony a zvonkohra. Slávnostné vyhlásenie tohto pútnického chrámu za Baziliku minor sa uskutočnilo 7. septembra 2002 za účasti diecézneho biskupa J. Em. Jána Chryzostoma kardinála Korca, Apoštolského nuncia Jozefa Henryka Nowackeho, otca biskupa Mariana Chovanca a množstva kňazov a pútnikov Slovenska.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
