Lenten resolutions

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

This year the Church is experiencing a special period of Lent – the beatification of John Paul II in the background. It is a unique reflection of the themes of life, the martyr’s death and the resurrection of Lord Jesus, which the Polish Pope. »

Beatification of John Paul II – Polish Westerplatte

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

We are quickly approaching 1 May 2011 – Divine Mercy Sunday which the Holy Father Benedict XVI assigned as the day of John Paul II’s beatification. Poland has waited for the news impatiently – the whole Church has awaited the day. »

Sign of Christian solidarity

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Anno Domini 2011 began, unfortunately, with the attacks against Christians in the world, this time in Alexandria, Egypt. There was a bomb attack on people going out of the Christian Coptic church. »

Let us not allow anyone to mock at Poles!

Mother of God and of the human family

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

The most important wishes

God is

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

The banished cross

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Throughout their difficult history Poles have understood well what the sign of the cross is. The cross has been appreciated, loved and worshipped so much. By nature we are sincere and open and that’s why in our Homeland the cross is in all honourable places. »
