Krakow · Auschwitz · Lagiewniki (Divine Mercy) · Prague · Altotting · Salzburg · Mariazell · Vienna · Budapest

As you make your way to Poland, Land of Kings, Saints, and Divine Mercy! Walk in the footsteps of St. 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.

The surroundings of the square have remained unchanged for almost 700 years and contain buildings of historic value, such as the Town Hall Tour, the Cloth Hall, and the Burgher’s houses. Tour the Cathedral, Coronation Chapel, and the Royal Chambers where a superb collection of Arras tapestries are on view. We visit the Cathedral where we can pray before the extraordinary Wit Stwosz altar. In the afternoon we visit Auschwitz, the notorious Nazi concentration camp where unspeakable atrocities occurred.

About Krakow & St. John Paul II:

Karol Wojtyla (St. John Paul II) was born in the Polish town of Wadowice on May 18, 1920. He moved to Krakow with his father in 1938, where he attended Jagiellonian University and began studying for the priesthood. He was ordained as a priest on November 1, 1946 and went on to continue his studies in Rome until 1948. He returned to Poland that same year for his first pastoral assignment in the village of Niegowic, which lasted seven months. He then was transferred to the parish of St. Florian in Krakow, where he also spent time hiking in the mountains and canoeing with young people click here to read more
