The artist allows Fr. Jan Twardowski, who wrote many poems inspired by the Holy Mother, to stand close to the source of his inspiration.

  (Fr. Jan Twardowski, Madonna z dzieciatkiem Jezus)

 In almost every Polish home there is a volume of poems by Fr. Twardowski. His collections of poetry include Blessing on Your Way, Polish Litany, and Blue Glasses. This enormously popular poet wrote of religious themes using a folksy, familiar style, often pointing out the sacred in the ordinary. His poems bring hope, faith, and love to a world bereft of all three.
