Lagiewniki is a district of Krakow which became famous due to Saint Sister Faustina, an apostle of the Divine Mercy. Sister Mary Faustina Kowalska promulgated the worship of God's Charity. Annually, each Leading Sunday, pilgrimages from all over Europe arrive to pray in front of the miraculous painting and Saint Faustina's tomb. On 17th August 2002, the Pope John Paul II consecrated the newly built Basilica and devoted the whole World to the Divine Mercy.
