Last weekend, Father Jerzy Popieluszko became Blessed Jerzy Popieluszko. This Polish Roman Catholic priest was martyred in October 1984 for opposing the Communist rule in Poland. Following the Beatification Mass on 6 June, Popieluszko's relics were brought in procession to the (still unfinished) National Temple of Divine Providence in Warsaw. In honor of Father Jerzy's beatification (and because I did not know about this project until reading about this event), I have added an entry for the National Temple of Divine Providence with a brief overview of its long and fascinating history. A few construction photographs are included; it will be very interesting to see how this massive church looks when it is completed after more than 200 years.
