Later on, the exhibition will be presented in the ambulatory of the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania in Vilnius and Brussels.
“We are celebrating the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, so any initiative that brings us closer to the mystery of the Divine Mercy, is extremely important. The Senate guards the Polish diaspora and the Poles who live abroad. It also takes care of the Poles who live in Lithuania. The fact that this initiative was created in Vilnius, by our compatriots and that this exhibition will be presented in the Senate has circumstantiating. This exhibition will be watched by all the senators, all the guests who come to the Senate of the Republic of Poland. Not everybody can go to Vilnius to see these places in Vilnius which are associated with the Divine Mercy” – says vice marshal of the Senate Maria Koc, quoted by the Radio Maryja.
