THIS IS NOT A COUNTRY, IT IS A FAKE

KRZYSZTOF CZABAŃSKI

Last week I wrote about a fake of a super-quick train Pendolino, which was purchased by Polish railway, with the consent of the government. Well, this train was purchased without wagons, with a special service system, which enables travel at high speed on turns. Consequently, the super-quick train Pendolino will go sedately and slowly in Poland; providing it will work at all, because it is not known if we will manage to rebuild the tracks… »

SO THAT ATHEISM WOULD NOT DEVOUR OUR IDENTITY

We were admiring the faces of young people with sparkling eyes. Young boys and girls from the whole world arrived in this wonderful Southern-American land, in order to sing their youth together, in order to show – as the pope Francis says – that through a window of youth, the world looks more beautiful and better. »

THE LAND GATHERS ASHES AND IT REMAINS IN THE HUMAN BEING

MATEUSZ WYRWICH

Time was neither shorter nor longer. It was as it was supposed to be, when, holding hands with her friend, they were standing in front of the German firing squad. She was not afraid of anything. Only two obsessive thoughts were attacking her: that it would hurt and that she wanted to shout: ‘Poland has not died yet!’ »

A PRIEST – A SIGN OF OPPOSITION

I anxiously hear these opinions, in others words – I find them unsuitable. For I remember very well the state of ‘catechesis in halls by churches’. Such opinions reveal a problem which is not so much in the catechized youth, but in the so-called outer reformatories of catechesis or in the very evangelizers. That’s true that Jesus used to say: ‘if you want’, but the presence of catechesis at school does not determine a student’s free will. »
