Poland Pilgrimage Day 6: Krakow Cathedral, St. Faustina, Divine Mercy & more
by Steve Ray on September 20, 2011
Today was remarkable. Mass in the crypt under the Cathedral of Krakow where Pope John Paul II celebrated his first Mass as a priest on November 2,1946.
A rich day touring Krakow, Wawel Hill, Market Square, the Castle-Palace, and more.
Afternoon to the new John Paul II center with amazing paintings, relic of his blood and ever developing.
Then a highlight of our pilgrimage – the “Real” Center for the Divine Mercy – where we prayed the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy at the Tomb of St. Faustina and then venerated her relics.
This was a favorite of all our pilgrims. One of the sisters here gave a nice talk to our group.
