Shrine Celebrates Encuentro Latino

More than 6,000, mostly Latino, pilgrims made their way to the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy on a steamy August Saturday for Encuentro Latino. This year, a total of 101 buses descended upon Eden Hill, carrying pilgrims from as far away as Florida and Virginia, as well as from closer geographical points such as New York, New Jersey, and Boston, joining the Marian Fathers in this annual celebration of Divine Mercy with a Latino accent.

Who Were Blesseds Anthony Leszczewicz and George Kaszyra?

It is said that there were more martyrs in the 20th century than in all centuries of Christian history combined. The number of martyrs in World War II are countless, St. Maximilian Kolbe and St. Edith Stein being two of the more well-known. But did you know that two Marians of the Immaculate Conception were also martyred during the Nazi occupation of Belarus? They are Blesseds Anthony Leszczewicz and George Kaszyra, and we celebrate their feast day on June 12.
