Baptism of Poland

'For with God, nothing shall be impossible."
-Luke 1:37

This year, quite a special anniversary has been observed in Poland.

1050 years ago, on April 16, 966, king Mieszko I (the first king of Poland), most of his knights and the royal court were baptised. The event is known as the baptism of Poland as Christianity was introduced in the country then. Historians seem to agree that Mieszko accepted the religion because his wife Dobrawa was Christian.

I am not sure who I got these pictures from. It was in Poland, though, years ago.
