Traditional pilgrimage to Jasna Góra
The principal pilgrimage in Poland, on the 4th of July this year, was the 24th International Pilgrimage which set out from Warsaw to Częstochowa (Jasna Góra).
More than 100 people participated, including representatives of Lithuania, Latvia, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Germany, Switzerland, and the United States.
Its theme was Mary as the Queen of Poland and this was being underlined every day in the sermons. During the afternoon lectures pilgrims could hear not only about Polish society’s virtues but also about its drawbacks and how to overcome them.
This pilgrimage was a form of reparation offered to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and in dedication to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
During the 11 days of the pilgrimage 1200 miraculous medallions were handed out.
At the end of the pilgrimage Our Lady received 18 new Knights from Poland, Russia and Switzerland.
