„The idea to commemorate Pope John Paul II in such a way was born last year. The tradition started with young people from John Paul II Middle School. This year they joined ZPL Vilnius Patriotic Youth club so we took over the idea.” explained to PL DELFI Magdalena Bartoszewicz, the president of  ZPL Vilnius Patriotic Youth club.
