The National Temple of Divine Providence in Warsaw is considered to be the most important ecclesiastical building of the last three centuries in Poland. The story of the construction of the Temple of Divine Providence began over 200 years ago. Poles have not managed to build a monument-votive church of Divine Providence for two centuries. The Temple is an important religious–national symbol of Poland. The complex of Divine Providence is composed of a Church of Divine Providence, Museum Pope John Paul II and Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski and Pantheon of the Great Poles.
The Centre of Divine Providence is a modern cultural institution. This is a place of thanksgiving to God for all these events that have happened in Poland’s history for over 200 years: the Constitution of May 3, 1791; the resumption of independence in 1918; the Miracle at the Vistula in 1920; the founding in Solidarity in September 1980; the resumption of independence in 1989; the pastoral ministry of Stefan Wyszynski and John Paul II’s pontificate. The shrine would be also a votive church of the nation for two thousand years of Christianity. It is the Temple of National Remembrance - with Poland entering the 21st century with God.
