LIVE: Prayer at the Chapel of the Black Madonna

The Pope visits the heart of Polish Catholicism. It is the shrine of Czestochowa, guarding the image of the "Black Madonna,� closely linked to the life of Pope John Paul II. This shrine continued to receive pilgrimages even during the totalitarianism era, despite the prohibitions of the Nazi regime and the communist government. This shrine hosted a World Youth Day in 1991. AQ/YA CTV - -BN up:ag #Pope Francis
