  1. “Blessed are the Merciful…” Preparing for World Youth Day 2016

    By Darius Villalobos | Monday, February 29, 2016

    I was blessed to be able to travel last week to Kraków, Poland in preparation for World Youth Day 2016. Our Familiarization trip took us to the beautiful city that has history and architecture that inspired us, both in our civic and faith lives. We also visited pilgrimage sites like Wadowice, Saint John Paul II’s home town; Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, the Polish monastery and convent meant to bring the Holy Land to those who cannot travel there; and the Divine Mercy Shrine, where Sister Faustina lived and committed the work of her community to the Divine Mercy devotion.
