This pilgrimage to Poland was spiritually rich to me. I was really filled with lots of mind blowing experiences and love from the group members that words alone cannot express. I’ll do it again and again if only my poor knees will permit me. I want to thank God and Catholic Journeys for this spiritual rich pilgrimage to Divine Mercy Shrine. More blessings on your endeavors, Catholic Journeys 🙏🏾♥️💃💃
