As they say, making a pilgrimage with children, especially small ones, is a real challenge - “During the pilgrimage with children, we experience this effort even more. In addition to the hardships of the road, we also take care of children, thanks to which we have no time to think about sore feet. We can then focus not only on ourselves, but on another person, and sacrifice ourselves for them. We don't think it is a pain to take our children on such a journey. You could say it's a blessing. "

During 16 days of hiking, pilgrims have to cover 500 km. They will reach Jasna Góra Monastery in exactly one week, on Thursday, August 12.
