You shall not kill - You shall not kill anybody!

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

The Constitution of the Republic of Poland should ensure security of all Polish citizens, even the least ones, the unborn children. The present line-up of parties in the Parliament can make it possible if the MPs, referring to law and justice, will vote unanimously. »

The way of the Cross through the city

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

During the Holy Week processions, the Ways of the Cross, wind through the streets and paths of Polish cities, towns and villages. One can observe a 'revival' of this service these days. »

We should be cautious to pass judgement

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

We are living in the times when the media pass moral judgements on people. It is worth remembering the old legal rule 'audiatur et altera pars' - 'hear the other side'. Each person has the right to the truth and to defend his/her good name. »

Catholic journalist AD 2007

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

The last events connected with Archbishop Wielgus's resignation as Metropolitan of Warsaw significantly proved that 'words spoken by 'authorities' in the media + picture = great power of suggestion'. And from there it is one step to an attempt on the freedom and dignity of man. This fact makes you reflect on the ethics of the professional group: journalists working in the press, television and the Internet. The feast of St Francis de Sales, patron saint of journalists, falls on 24 January. »

Your Eminence, we thank you

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Manger calls for love

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

In the festive atmosphere of Christmas one must reflect on the place of child and family in the contemporary world. The despair of an abused child is pricks of conscience to all those who did not notice the family tragedy in time. »

O Christ, exercise all thy rights over us!

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

The Feast of Christ the King ends the liturgical year. In the light of the approaching local elections it is worth remembering that the most important moral law is the law of love and the biggest royalty is service. »

I have today set before you life and death...

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

The Polish Parliament is discussing a revision of the constitutional regulation concerning the defence of life by adding the phrase 'form conception to natural death'. The words are important in the homeland of the Pope who appealed for culture of life, the Pope who said, 'Stop barbarism!' »

Patriotism, family, immigration

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

The idea of homeland will survive even it is not on any map of a real country. Family and culture will transmit it from generation to generation. That happened to Poland, which was restored after 123 years of slavery. Today more than ever one should preserve the value of patriotism. The structures of the European Union and a big wave of immigration of young Poles have special grounds for that. »

We are at the foot of Jasna Gora

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Polish pastoral ministry is focused on the pastoral ministry at Jasna Gora. That's why 'Niedziela' writes about this place. Jasna Gora is Poland, is Polonia [Polish immigrants all over the world], and many events that have gone down in the history of our nation. »

What is in the man of the 21st century?

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Some Polish workers who made the choice of bitter bread of immigration in the richer EU countries did not find their 'promised land'. The pictures of the Italian labour camps, where Polish people are sent, shock us by their cruelty. »

About God in family

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Family is the most important community for man. It is in family that man grows and family is the aim of his life. It is in family that faith is passed on from generation to generation. »
