World Youth Day - searching for love

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

We will remember the August events in Cologne for a long time - the 20th World Youth Day at the initiative of the Servant of God John Paul II. At the same time we should ask the question: Why do young people come for these meetings in such great numbers? »

John Paul II - this would be a wonderful patron saint of Europe

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

The patron saint of contemporary Europe should be our candidate for sainthood - the Servant of God John Paul II. Few people knew Europe and its Christian culture better than him. As a universal Shepherd he embraced the whole world with his hands full of love but Europe was the dearest to him. With his whole being John Paul II was a man of evangelical culture, culture of love and life. »

Ash, bread and publicity

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

'The beginning of Lent is very important to Christians, especially in Poland', writes Father Ireneusz Skubis in his editorial in the cycle Sursum corda.

But we should remember that it is the time of conversion and performing deeds of mercy. »

The significance of painful history

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

'The significance of painful history' is the title of the weekly reflection of Monsignor Ireneusz Skubis, editor-in-chief of 'Niedziela'.
