THE HUNGARIANS HAVE WON, BECAUSE ORBAN WON

WOJCIECH KĘDER

What an Euro-disappointment! The Hungarians, having the only and unique occasion to get rid of the horrible ‘nationalist-rightist’ government and its leader – Viktor Orban and elect a new government which would be full of dignity, competent, popular and respected in the world, to which they have been encouraged by their euro-Atlantic politicians for a long time, did not use this occasion. »

EASTER ACCORDING TO THE FIFTH GOSPEL

FR. PAWEŁ RYTEL-ANDRIANIK

The Holy Land is called the Fifth Gospel, because it complements biblical descriptions. So, how is Easter celebrated in the places where the mysteries of our salvation were fulfilled? Who and what is present there? »

WITH JOHN PAUL II FOR A MEETING WITH MERCIFUL JESUS

This year’s preparations for the Feast of the Resurrection were filled with waiting for canonization of blessed John Paul II, embedded in the heart of the liturgical life of the Church – during the joy of Passover.

DISCIPLES OF JESUS – MESSENGERS OF THE RESURRECTION

HENRYK WITCZYK

Courageous and pious women are present in various moments of Jesus Christ’s life. On Good Friday and on Easter Saturday, the Church solemnly read these fragments of the Gospel which tell us about the presence of women – students of Jesus – at the cross and grave of the Teacher, whom they were following till the end. All the Evangelists say unanimously that Risen Jesus appeared to them, women, as the first ones. »

CHRIST REALLY ROSE FROM DEATH

JOHN PAUL II A FATHER AND FRIEND OF THE YOUTH IN THE WORLD

During a ceremony of passing signs of the Worldly Youth’s Days, which took place on the Palm Sunday on 13 April 2014 in Rome on the Square of St. Peter, pope Francis said: - John Paul II, who was an initiator of the Worldly Youth’s Days, is going to become their great patron.

JOHN PAUL II. THE KNOWN SAINT

GRZEGORZ POLAK

The real holiness ‘smells nice’, delights, enchants, attracts like a magnet and is liked by everybody. It was so – and is so – with the holiness of John Paul II. In his case it has one more value. We read in books about previous heroes of faith, whereas we saw holiness of John Paul II with our own eyes, and our children heard about it from our tales. »

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE IRREPLACEABLE

ALINA CZERNIAKOWSKA

Winter is over. The early spring is smiling with the sun, bird’s singing and hope for a better and happy life. Everyone is busy with his own life. Tired, in a hurry we sit down in front of TV, computer screens, we flip through glossy magazines which is easy and fun. It may be possible, but from 10 April 2010 everything became different, and, first of all – we are different, although we are not aware of it. It looks as if we lost the ground beneath our feet and found it difficult to keep balance. »

CZESŁAW RYSZKA

Elections for the European Parliament will be held on 25 May 2014. Poland in the next 5-year-old term of office will be represented by 51 euro-deputies in the parliament of 766 members.
