At St. John’s Archcathedral in Warsaw a prayer action, “Prayer Without Borders for Independent Poland” began earlier this year. The project was started by the Schuman Institute and Schuman Groups from all over Poland. It will last for 100 months to commemorate the 100 years since Poland reclaimed independence.
The series of prayers started with a blessing by Cardinal Kazimierz Nycz at the Archcathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist and was followed by the first Prayer Without Borders.

For the next hundred months we invite everyone to participate on the 13th of each month. Let’s fill the cathedral with the faithful. This is a project, which will continue to radiate and create similar prayers in all other Polish and European cities. All this is about to renew Europe, to return to Christian roots, to change the functioning of the European Union, it is to be a community of the peoples of Europe.
The Prayer is not only a thanksgiving prayer but also a request for the prompt beatification of the Servant of God Robert Schuman, who after the war began the mission of building the Commonwealth of Europe. Prayers will be said for the purpose of building a community of nations based on Christian foundations in the face of ever-increasing threats posed by the civilization of death. The first “Prayer Without Borders” took place on May 13, 2018, during the European Schuman Festival in the Temple of Divine Providence in Warsaw’s Wilanów.
