Warsaw · Niepokalanow · Swincie Warckie · Czestochowa · Wadowice · Krakow · Auschwitz · Lagiewniki (Divine Mercy) · Wieliczka · Legnica · Prague · Melk · Vienna

As you make your way to Poland, Land of Kings, Saints, and Divine Mercy! Walk in the footsteps of Saint John Paul II - from where he was born, baptized, where he became a Priest - Bishop - Cardinal, and where he spent his time visiting as Pope. Take in the Shrine of Divine Mercy (in Lagiewniki) and be drawn closer to the life of St. Faustina and her Divine Mercy message. One of the most obvious works of mercy, and perhaps the most difficult to put into practice, is to forgive others. This pilgrimage will teach you, and allow you, to be able to forgive.
