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. »

Pilgrimage to the Holy Land

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

At the end of September and beginning of October the editorial board of 'Niedziela', in two groups, was lucky to make a pilgrimage to the Land of our Saviour. This was a unique pilgrimage, a great event in the life of each of us. »

They help people die

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

How can we help those who are dying to pass away to the Father's Home? This urgent issue is discussed by the organisations that take care for the terminally ill. The Brotherhoods of Good Death have a special place among them. »

The Papal Day

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

The day of 16th October has especially become embedded in the memory of Polish people. I always feel deeply moved when I listen to the words of the cardinal who announced that the cardinal of Krakow became pope. »

To see Catholic media

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Today it is not easy to be a Christian when we are bombarded with a mass of information, with offers that should not be rejected and much work, the one we need and the one we do not need, as well as speed of life. »
