A PRIEST – A SIGN OF OPPOSITION

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. »

WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT?

ALINA CZERNIAKOWSKA

I understood how important is every human, the most ordinary life. Every life is the universe – says a nun and a missionary working in Kazakhstan for 12 years. –Sometimes it is a route of 100 km through snow, rough terrains by various means of transport, in order to meet two students or one elderly woman. Now I know, that it has sense’. »
