LIFE MUST BE LOVED

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

In my life I meet people who proudly say that they are life defenders. These are people very engaged in pro-life movements which are playing an invaluable role in our times for the sake of the defence of conceived life. »

BEATING THE CHURCH - CONTINUED

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

The State does not like something in the Church again, that is: too many priests are employed in the military ordinariate. As a result, the liquidation of a few posts of the priests is being planned. Let’s note the situation which has taken a place in Spain recently when the socialist and the enemy of the Church – Jose Luis Zapatero was governing. He started introducing reforms connected with the anti-church legislation concerning the ethics and Christian morality. »

READ THE CATHOLIC PRESS VERY CAREFULLY

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

The issue of finances of the Church has appeared in the forums of media again. The Church is accused of vast wealth and greediness. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who believe in these fairy tales especially that the stories are supported by the journalists of highly-circulated newspapers or by television and radio stations and they are reaching to a very wide number of the society. »

ENDANGERED FATE OF PENSIONERS

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

I remember a conversation in the 80s of the previous century with a pensioner who said that she wanted her daughter to retire at that time because she would have had a peaceful life as her mother, she would have had an assured existence and she would have been happy. »

DO NOT CLOSE DOWN OUR SCHOOLS!

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Liquidation of the Education Ministry? It does sound unbelievable, as if it was the biggest absurd. But we also ask another question: didn’t such a thought come to the mind of people who learnt that a school is being liquidated in their village? This is a dramatic situation. Are we allowed to liquidate schools which educated many generations of the residents in various villages...? »

The beloved signs of the Homeland

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Approaching the Polish Military Cemetery in Monte Cassino, we read: ‘Dear Passer-by, tell the whole Poland that we died as faithful to serving the country’. »

It is not far to the eternity from here

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

I have mentioned recently on the pages of our Catholic weekly about the cases of March 1968 when students were treated with tear gas by police on Krakowskie Przedmieście in Warsaw. »

Pondering over the dam

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

I was able to be near the place where the body of priest Jerzy Popiełuszko was found, at the dam near Włocławek; terrible rough water, the vast space of the river. »

Poland, where are you going?

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

We are still in the atmosphere created by media – television, radio and some newspapers- where there is so much place to criticize the Church. Instead of asking and critically evaluating people responsible for the economy about unclear matters connected with the sale of national treasure. »

Łagiewniki – the School of Hope

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Our thoughts and heartfelt interest have been directed towards Łagiewniki in Krakow recently, where the Second World Congress of Divine Mercy was held and attended by about 2 thousand representatives of 68 countries in the world. »

Rosary Crusade for the intention of Homeland

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

The atmosphere in Poland, among the others in our media – press, radio and television – is quite strange. We are surprised by some people who suddenly express their opinions in newspapers or electronic media. There are always many readers, people taking part in discussions but there are probably more thoughtful people. »

That day shook the world

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

A great disaster affected America ten years ago. The passenger airlines were directed against the towers in New York and some other places. The whole world saw two huge burning towers. We might not have realised that there were hundreds of dead or burnt alive people there. »

Giving an account to Jesus

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

This is a fragment of the Eucharistic song for the Feast of Corpus Christi. It is a big event in the universal Church and a wonderful event in every parish. Lord Jesus comes to us. »

With a programme – like John Paul II

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

We are after the beatification of John Paul II, which the universal Church with Benedict XVI as her head and the Church in Poland as well as each of us, having a personal approach to this event, awaited. Since it is a big affair when someone is called blessed or saint, when someone is chosen as a patron. »

‘Niedziela’ for young people

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Since several days, i.e. 3 April 2011, our insert ‘Niedziela Liturgiczna’ [Liturgical Sunday] has had a new title – ‘Niedziela Mlodych’ [Sunday of Young People]. We actually would like to gain new young Readers. »
