Pilgrimage to Budslav

The National Sanctuary in Budslau occupies the central part in life of the Catholic Church in Belarus. The Icon of the Mother of God of Budslau —Patroness of Belarus — as a miracle-working relic was mentioned for the first time in 1617. The main feast is observed on July 2nd. 

Foot pilgrimage (piligrimka) begins these days in Belarus. Catholics (over 40 000 every year) hurry in Budslav, they want to worship the  the Mother's of God holy icon.

The church seems to me truly spectacular in its beauty .. Great .. beautiful .. It raises its two towers in the sky and looks great!
