A CENTRE FOR ADDICTED PEOPLE

GIVING ONESELF TO OTHERS

ANNA CICHOBŁAZIŃSKA

The headquarter of 'Betania' in Mstów is not a big estate with two houses, situated at Leśna street. And, indeed, a forest is looking into it at the distance of a small asphalt road. Two houses further and there are big fields. Life is bustling behind a wooden fence. »

A CLIMATIC CAROUSEL

MIROSŁAW PIOTROWSKI

CHRISTMAS ON SALE

HOW WE ARE INFORMED

Krzysztof Czabański

Regrettable Stanisław Lem used to say that the world is governed by chaos and accident, because nobody is able to understand a stream, ocean of information which is constantly attacking our eyes, ears and brain. That is true. Even computers contribute to production of next information than to selecting the previous one. »

IN ORDER TO ATTACK A PRIEST

MARIA FORTUNA - SUDOR

THE MUSLIMS ARE DEFENDING THE CROSS, AND WHAT ABOUT THE CATHOLICS?

Jan Maria Jackowski

An exhibition has been presented in the Centre of the Modern Art in Warsaw till recently, whose integral part was a film of Jacek Markiewicz 'Adoration of Christ'. In the general opinion of believers, this 'art work' contains blasphemous content, insulting religious feelings of the Catholics. »

HELPING OTHERS, WE ARE CHANGING OURSELVES

AROUND POLAND IN OUR AND OTHERS’ EYES

ELŻBIETA MORAWIEC

A great book of Andrzej Nowak ‘Intellectual history of the Third Polish Republic’, in my opinion, has its title chosen in an unfortunate way – I included my suggestion in the title of the text. If it is intellectual history, it is of the very author of these interviews carried out in the years 1990-2012. 22 years, in which one can see how 30-year-old (1990) doctor becomes one of the most prominent Polish historians, an expert of Russia and many international issues. »

MOTHERS OF PRIESTS

KRYSTYNA CZUBA

Journalists of various media wrote and spoke about the death of Marianna Popiełuszko – mother of blessed priest Jerzy. One of the most beautiful utterances was the reflection of Fr. inf. Ireneusz Skubiś during an Appeal prayer at Jasna Góra on 19 November this year. I participated in this prayer through the Television Trwam. At that time, at Jasna Góra there were many priests. I saw their emotionally agitated faces. It was to them and about their mothers. Beautiful and real. »

THE PRIMATE HELPS THE DISABLED

KATARZYNA WOYNAROWSKA

We hear more and more often about how much the state spends on the Church. But nobody estimates what the Church is doing for this state and its citizens. Because who, for example, knows that in a small village in the Lesser Poland province, near Tarnów, there is a super centre for disabled children thanks to engagement and inspiration of archbishop Józef Kowalczyk? And that not only they receive help and care there? »

SO THAT OUR HISTORY WOULD BE KNOWN

MATEUSZ WYRWICH

They have been collecting souvenirs of history of our nation for seventy years. They started collecting them in exile, at the most tragic moment of the modern Poland. Just since the war till today, successive generations have collected nearly a million of exhibits »

GENDER IDEOLOGY, THAT IS, A WOLF IN THE SHEEP’S CLOTHING

FR. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

The Gospel is a joyful message about salvation. It is the teaching of Jesus Christ, which gives human life a full dimension of temporal and eternal life. According to the Gospel every man is redeemed by Jesus Christ who is his Redeemer. The work of Jesus Christ is His teaching and suffering, cross and resurrection. Thanks to the grace of Jesus gained on the cross, the man can have the grace of redemption. »

EUCHARIST AS A SOURCE OF LIFE
