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. »

Jubilee among friends

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

This year 'Niedziela' celebrates its 80th anniversary and the 25th anniversary of its reactivation during the times of the Solidarnosc movement in 1981, and I, its editor-in-chief, celebrate the 25th anniversary of holding this position. »

To experience Lwow

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

In many Poles' lives the most important events happened in Lwow [Ukrainian Lviv]]. We feel regret over this wonderful land and its wonderful people who experienced their Polish national identity in the times that required heroic attitudes. »

Hot Polish May

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

This year Polish May, always saturated with Marian prayer, is filled with international events. Benedict XVI, Successor of St Peter, makes his first visit to the country of his predecessor, John Paul II. The appalling film 'The Da Vinci Code' is on in Polish cinemas. The Catholic Weekly 'Niedziela' tries to introduce and explain the meaning of these events. »

Breaking 'The Code...'

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

We are shocked by the book and film 'The Da Vinci Code', which Archbishop Angelo Amato, secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, described as 'full of slander, offences and historical and theological errors about Jesus, the Gospels and the Church.' »

Let us reflect before we criticise

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Before we mindlessly hurl insults at Radio Maryja we should listen to this station. We will hear the prayer of the wounded people who trust God with their problems, we hear about helping the neighbour, about care for the homeland and about numerous other daily matters of Polish families. First of all, millions of listeners of Radio Maryja deserve respect. »

Know in order to love

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

It is not enough to put a beautiful edition of the Holy Scriptures on a shelf in the home bookcase. One should read and study it. Man who reads the Bible is a different Christian. »

Defending Fr Drozdek

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Another person has been left at the mercy of the media. It is easy to destroy one's reputation. The communist secret services are taking their vengeance from beyond the grave on those who looked upon them with disapproval. »

Making an effort with kindness

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

What are the limits of freedom? It is easy to see that some journalists confuse the concept of freedom with the concept of lawlessness. And this can lead to unpredictable and dangerous phenomena, which refer to both individuals and whole social groups. »

United in sorrow

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

We are experiencing the tragedy in Silesia again and again. Help for the families and victims of the Katowice roof collapse comes from everywhere. Can we draw conclusions from these tragic events? »

When cracks appear in love

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Love is not given once for all. One should care for it, cherish it and sometimes even fight for it. After all love does not concern only two people. »

Before the 50th anniversary of the Jasna Gora Vows of the Polish Nation

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Polish people will always associate the empty armchair of the arrested Primate Wyszynski with the dramatic events concerning the Vows of the Polish Nation (Act of Consecration of Poland) at Jasna Gora. This event happened exactly 50 years ago. »

Christ, reign over us!

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Pope Pius XI introduced the feast of Christ the King in 1925. So this year we are celebrating its 80th anniversary. By celebrating this feast the Church wants to emphasize the omnipotence and range of Jesus' reign, which is a special authority, suffered and humiliated in the service of man. »
