Warsaw – Krzyż Papieski (Papal Cross)

This is the site in the centre of Warsaw, at Piłsudski Square, where Pope John Paul II celebrated Mass on his first Papal pilgrimage to Poland. The Pope was instrumental in the transition of Poland from a communist influenced country to a fully fledged democracy. It was when the Pope said:

“I cry out from the depths of this millennium – let your Spirit descend and renew the face of the earth. The face of this land.”
