  6th World Youth Day
by gosiaPL
 
 

For the Sixth World Youth Day in 1991, pope John Paul II invited all the young people to come to the Jasna Gora sanctuary.

The event took actually 4 days (August 12-15) and the local record was beaten: 1,700,000 young people from all over the world came to Czestochowa!
I didn't go but... shhh, got the T-shirt ;-)

The picture shows the crowds in the open space where the Holy Mass for pilgrims is celebrated.
