Polonia vs. Homeland’s matters

Polonia should be cared for. The example of that is the American Polonia, especially the Polish immigrants in Chicago, practically from the beginning being under the care of the Polish Church, which has maintained faith, culture and Polish traditions. »

From religious instruction to Europe’s culture

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

About priests in the Year for Priests

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

‘Percutiam pastorem, et dispergentur oves gregis’– ‘I shall strike the shepherd and the sheep of the flock will be scattered’ (Matthew 26:31). Lord Jesus builds a picture of the Church on the example of a shepherd’s life. »
