August is a special month in Poland when the landscape on the roads is changed. Thousands of pilgrims from various parts of Poland set off on foot pilgrimages to Jasna Góra, the National Sanctuary of Our Lady in Częstochowa. Pilgrims cover hundreds of kilometers, confidently carrying their own intentions and those entrusted to them by others.
Poles make pilgrimages with their whole families, which is a powerful testament to their fidelity to God, the Gospel and the Church. Among this year's pilgrims to the National Shrine, were a number of our Sisters: Sr Hanna Kiedrowska from the Prokura community in Rome, Sr. Consolata Majewska, Sr. Paulina Szałek, Sr. Iwona Małachowska, Sr. Jolanta Groszczyk and Sr. Monika Graw from their communities in Poland.
Dear Sisters, thank you for the efforts and sacrifices of the pilgrimage, and above all thank you for the prayers offered for our communities!
