All Saint's Day

Today is a very important Holiday in Poland. It is All Saint's Day. This is where everyone goes to the grave yards and clean their relative's graves. At night they light candles. Visually is it stunning, but when you see people standing at the graves praying for their dead to be accepted into heaven, it becomes something completely different. Here are some pictures I took.

As I was taking this picture, these four boys came up and started to quietly chat in front of this sea of candles. These are part of the 6 million youth who do not know Christ. They are religious and yet if you ask them who Jesus is, they will say, "That guy on the cross." Nothing more. I was listening to Casting Crowns while taking picture and I don't think I will every listen to "Lifesong" quite the same way again.
