It will continue until September 10th before Jesus present in the Blessed Sacrament exposed in the “Queen of Peace” Monstrance which comes from the International Center of Prayer for Peace in Medjugorie (Bosnia – Herzegovina).
It is our desire that the presence of the “Queen of Peace” in this unique place marks the inauguration of a peregrination aimed at promoting and fostering prayer for peace.
Already now we invite all to come and join prayer for peace in the Jasna Góra Shrine!
