Licheń:

This place of the appearance of the Holy Mother is located ten kilometers from Konina. In the middle od the nineteenth century, the Madonna herself predicted that a church would stand in Lichen. In truth, this sanctuary of the Mother of God, Sorrowful Queen of Pland, has grown into the largest sanctuary in all of Poland.

History: In 1813 during a heavy battle, a wounded soldier asked the Holy Mother for rescue. He received a cure and the Holy Mother asked him to look for her picture and take it to his native place. After twenty-three years, the picture was found and hung on a tree. In 1850 the Holy Mother appeared to a shepherd and asked him to tell the people to stop sinning. Later during a terible plague, the people implored the Holy Mother for help. The sick began to regain their health and hope for life. A special book, Lichenska Ksiega Lask, chronicles the recoveries.

Pilgrims visiting the sanctuary enter through "The Steps of Penance" only on their knees. The biggest steeple (fifteen tons) in Poland is here.

Pope John Paul II visited the sanctuary of Lichen with a rosary of pearls.

For a full description of Lichen, see Sanktuaria Polskie, Grzegorz Jankowski, pp. 64-79.

Świeta Lipka:

The beginning of this sanctuary is shrouded in legends. The Mother of God appeared to a condemned person who carved a most beautiful figure of the Holy Mother and the Holy Babe. A jury, seeing the figure, released the condemned. He hung the figure on a linden tree. People started to pray before it and received miraculous answers to their prayers. "Before this beautiful figure, even the animals kneel." Today the wooden figure is in the basilica of Swieta Lipka along with a miraculous picture of Mary.
