Poland Pilgrimage, Day 3: Our Lady of Czestochowa
by Steve Ray on September 17, 2011
From Warsaw to the Black Madonna in Czestochowa (fantastic time). Mass, tour of the largest pilgrimage site in Poland. Sometimes over 1 million people in one day. Tradition says the icon of the Black Madonna was painted by St. Luke on a table made by Jesus.
After this moving visit we drove to mountains if Zakepone where John Paul II vacationed throughout his life. Reminds me of Switzerland. Great day.
