St. john's hut in ( hermitage) Dukla

18th August 2016


Hermitage of St. John's in Dukla is very popular with tourists especially in spring and summer when a lot of people visit it. It ids located in the middle of wood. It is a small hut where John lived in the 16th century of course it was rebuild. But what is important it was rebuilt on the same place as in John's time
It is hard to believe how his lifestyle looked like in the past. No electricity,no central heating but it had fresh air unpoilt nature, a lot of herbs and God in the heaven.

He led simple life but happy one.




Inside the hut. It was a simple bed and a table...





In the background Cergowa Mount. 

Mt. Cergowa (716 m.) Beskid Niski from the area of Krosno/South Poland. Abundance of hills, forests, meadows..and freedom.








The oak which commemorates John Paul II who was here...

John was born in Dukla, Poland, in 1414. Died in 1484 in Lwów, Poland. He joined the Friars Minor Conventual, a religious order whose members strictly adhered to their rule of poverty and obedience.Though he went blind later in age he was able to prepare sermons with the help of an aide. His preaching was credited with bringing people back to the Church in his province.Soon after his death, there was an immediate veneration at his tomb and several miracles were attributed to him.
On June 10, 1997, he was canonized by Pope John Paul II in a mass at Krosno, Poland, before approximately one million peopl
