HOPE ON BIG CROSSROADS OF THE CHURCH

FR. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Recently we have heard talks and statements of Polish bishops on the visit ‘Ad limina apostolorum’, about the necessity of getting prepared for this visit. The previous visit of this kind took place during the cadency of pope Benedict XVI in 2005. How much bishops reminiscence this visit also during the times of the Holy Father John Paul II. And here today we are witnesses of the visits of Polish hierarchs of the Church during the pontificate of pope Francis – the visit so much awaited. »

SUNDAY IN EUROPE

MIROSŁAW PIOTROWSKI

In the Genesis we read ‘And when God finished his work on the sixth day, on which he had been working, he rested on the seventh day after his whole effort which he had undertaken’. In our calendar the seventh day of the week is Sunday, and for the Christians it is a holy day, that is a day-off from work. However, it is not respected or regulated both in the Polish and EU legislation. »

GOING WITH MARY BY THE HAND

MUM

When I was looking for the beginnings of my friendship with Mary, and hereby – the rosary prayer, I reach to the Light-Life movement in my memories. Oasis meetings devoted to Her person are deeply rooted in my heart. At that time I bought the first on-finger rosary, a statue of Immaculate Mary, who – although it has passed 25 years since then – she has been accompanying me till today. »

WARSAW, MY WARSAW…

ALINA CZERNIAKOWSKA

I always watch archive films, photos, documents of pre-war Warsaw with great pleasure and joy in my heart. I love Warsaw like somebody who is my close person, valuable to me and this love has lasted in our family for many generations. In my childhood I used to listen to my grandpa’s memories, stories about his Warsaw, reminding the atmosphere of ‘Lalka’ by Bolesław Prus... »

CHRISTIANITY IN THE SYMBIOSIS WITH EUROPE

FR. MAREK ŁUCZAK

A lot is being said about the debate connected with the crucifix in the public space for at least a few years. The defense of the crucifix is treated by some people as an expression of parochialism and clericalism. However, it turns out at its base there are values out of which Europe is built »

INSINUATIONS OF THE CHURCH ENEMIES

JAN MARIA JACKOWSKI

In the recent months we have been witnesses of massed anti-Catholic campaign, proceeding under the motto of chasing pedophilia among Catholic priests. Following the most powerful mass media, one can feel that pedophilia among Catholic priests is the widespread problem, which is, certainly a lie and manipulation. »

POWER OF THE ROSARY PRAYER

For me the rosary prayer is a light, an inspiration and a certain path for life. And saying it every day is a guarantee for joyful, life-giving relation with Jesus and Our Lady, which results from a deep belief that I am fulfilling God’s will. Finally, the very Mother of Jesus often, in various parts of the world, always asked us to say this prayer. This is a prayer demanding concentration especially that it is necessary to extract many events from Christ and Mary’s life from memory. »

A VISIT ‘AD LIMINA APOSTOLORUM’

WŁODZIMIERZ RĘDZIOCH

In the letter to the Galatians St. Paul writes: ‘…I set off to Jerusalem to meet Kefas, staying at him for fifteen days’ (1.18). In this way we find out about the first visit of St. Paul to St. Peter. Because the expression ‘meet ‘ means here ‘arrive with visit and homage’ – the words of Paul are supposed to emphasize the Peter’s primacy. »
