Poland & Prague

The birthplace of Pope John Paul II, offers us a pilgrimage into a deep-rooted Catholic tradition which has, for many years, been hidden from us due to communism. 

There are many places of pilgrimage in Poland which are associated with Pope John Paul II. Perhaps the most major religious shrine is that of Our Lady of Czestochowa. It is one of the major religious shrines in the Christian world.

In visiting the Pauline monastery on Jasna Gora we see the image of the “Black Madonna” before us.  This is a relic of unparalleled religious significance and an object of great historical and artistic value.
