WITH BLESSED JOHN PAUL II IN THE YEAR OF FAITH

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

We have hosted cardinal Stanisław Dziwisz in the editorial office recently, the metropolitan of Cracow and a long-time secretary of Blessed John Paul II, a legendary man. There was a statue of Blessed John Paul II on a table. During our conversation I noticed that it is a statue for the Polish Church, for our parishioners, for the Year of Faith, and I asked how the Priest Cardinal would call it. Without thinking he answered: A Witness of Faith. We all signed under this name with both hands. »

SUNDAY OF MASS MEDIA

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

The third Sunday of September in Poland is a Day of Mass Media. The contemporary Catholic, layman coming to the church and listening to God’s word, is often full of various information provided by mass media. Let’s note that in the present times we are strongly subordinated to the action of television, internet, radio, various channels, films and computer games, and also a big number of press titles, prepared in a very tempting way and having a big influence on the conscience of readers. »

SCHOOL

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

School is an important topic worth the highest attention. After all, each of us remembers our school, teachers, educators and even school caretakers and other school workers. We have been reminiscing these people for years, like our relatives from our families. Therefore school is so important. In our CVs we mention schools we finished, on particular occasions we say about teachers who were close for us. School years remain in our memory and often awaken our gratitude feelings. »

STONES AT THE CHURCH

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

There is such a saying that the human being can be killed with a newspaper. Even though it refers to politicians – it is seen – one can hurt everybody with a newspaper today. In the ‘General weekly’ there appeared an article of Marek Zając entitled ‘Father is ruling’. »

HOW TO REBUILD THE POLISH CONSCIOUSNESS

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

In the recent years we have noticed exceptionally many attacks against the Church, against priest-bishops and against priests. In the dimension of the general Church we also register more and more attacks against the very Holy Father Benedict XVI. It is a very strong attack against the Church, clergy and the Catholics. We are often the witnesses of burglaries into convents, strong critics of the monastery life – the onset is enormous. »

A TASK OF MOTHERHOOD IS ETERNITY

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Mother, mum, mummy...There are still many other words which refer to our mother. However, these words will not be enough for the content of this holy notion which is connected with motherhood. Today we go further with our thought and heart towards her who gave birth to us, fed us and brought up us and always loved us. ‘I love you’ – these are the words, whose meaning a man learns just from mother and which we remember and pronounce from the beginning of our life. »

WHITE AND GREEN MAY

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

May is one of the most beautiful months in the year. First of all, we enjoy a special prayer in it and singing to Our Lady, being gathered at May Divine Services. A man, who loves, wants to talk about it, sing and adore the name of one whom he loves, especially when these are God and Jesus’ Mother. And what is alive in us, is so honestly grateful, joyful and full of glory. »
