Notes June 8 Celebration in Krakow

Pope Francis on June 9. 2019, gave thanks for the model of Blessed Michael Giedroyc, who was celebrated June 8 in Krakow.  The Pope’s remarks came before praying the Regina Coeli with the faithful gathered in St. Peter’s Square for the Pentecost Mass.

“Held yesterday in Krakow was a thanksgiving celebration to confirm devotion to Blessed Michael Giedroyc, in which Bishops of Poland and Lithuania took part,” the Holy Father said.” May this event encourage Poles and Lithuanians to strengthen their bonds in the sign of faith and of the veneration of Blessed Michael, a model of evangelical humility and charity, who lived in Krakow in the 15th century.”
