WYD Trek: TNG -- Day 15 continued

The Black Madonna of Częstochowa

The icon of the Black Madonna of Częstochowa is seen during Mass in the Jasna Gora
Monastery, Poland, August 1.

We saw the revered icon of the Black Madonna today. According to Father Richard Au, it is practically a symbol of Poland's pride and religious joy.

The Black Madonna has been a target for many invaders, including Napoleon, as they tried to break Poland's spirit. None have succeeded!

For the rest of today, we will be traveling to Prague, Czech Republic.

God bless!
