Pope Francis urges us all on pilgrimage. Pilgrims to Poland, whether to World Youth Day 2016 or elsewhere, will benefit from this combination of spiritual food and practical information.
A brief survey of Poland’s history and Christianity precedes detailed visits: to Kraków, the Royal Cathedral and the Old Town, the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy, the Nowa Huta and Salt Mines; to Wadowice, the town of St John Paul II, the Kalwaria Sanctuary, and to the shrine of Czestochowa. Finally, to Auschwitz and to deeper reflection on the need for mercy and reconciliation.
