Day 8 & 9 ( Our Lady of Fatima Basilica, Krzeptowki & Lagiewniki, Krakow

We are coming into the homestretch of our pilgrimage and everything continues to go incredibly well. On Monday we had the opportunity to visit and celebrate Mass at the Basilica of Our Lady of Fatima in Krzeptowki. We celebrated Mass in a chapel where everything was constructed out of pine wood since pine trees are found throughout the region. On our way to Zakopone we watched a new movie about the message of Fatima and why it is still of great relevance for the world today.  We were planning on having lunch on a mountainside that provided a panoramic view of the area, but the local authorities had the road closed because there was still a lot of snow. We headed back to a local restaurant near the Basilica before making our way to Krakow to the Pilgrimage House of Divine Mercy.  Yesterday we had Mass in the Convent Chapel where St. Faustina is entombed. It was a small but beautiful chapel and it was a nice sunny day. One of the workers who helps manage traffic in and out of the c
