The Polish Roots of World Youth Day

People crowd outside the Jasna Gora monastery in Czestochowa, Sunday, June 19, 1983, to attend a solemn Mass held by Pope John Paul II. It was the fourth day of the Pontiff’s eight-day pilgrimage on his second trip to his home country.

COMMENTARY: World Youth Day Lisbon is an appropriate time to reflect on the 1983 visit of Pope John Paul II to Częstochowa.
