HONOUR OF THE FIRST MINISTER

The fiscal pact which was implemented in life on 1 January 2013 in the EU countries, which is so broadly discussed in Poland, is an international non-EU treaty, prepared under the aegis of Germany, in order to enforce financial discipline in the EU countries which are economically weaker (breaching the limit of deficit on the level of 0.5 per cent of the gross domestic product will result in strict punishments). »

WE ARE REMINISCING THE FATHER OF THE LIGHT-LIFE MOVEMENT

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

r. Francis Blachnicki (born in 1921), a servant of God, died in German Carlsberg on 27 February 1987.

THE CONVENT ‘MATER ECCLESIAE’ – HERMITAGE OF BENEDICT XVI

WŁODZIMIERZ RĘDZIOCH

John Paul II paid a great attention to a prayer, therefore he wanted to bring the community of cloistered nuns into Vatican, who could support his mission of the Bishop of Rome and the activity of the Holy See, in their prayers. It was decided that the old building in the Vatican Gardens would be assigned for the headquarters of the nuns, which had earlier been used by the Vatican police. »

ON GUARD AT THE CONFESSION OF ST. PETER

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

DO NOT CORRECT THE DECALOGUE

LIDIA DUDKIEWICZ

The interpretation of the teaching of the Church is presented by every pope, the Teaching Office of the Church but not by TV journalists, newspapers, doctors, ecologist, biology professors, politicians or monks or priests rejecting the priestly state, trying to drown the betrayed Church in intellectual and emotional complexes – said bishops Kazimierz Ryczan. »

GENDER IDEOLOGY OR A ROAD TO ARMAGEDON

ELŻBIETA MORAWIEC

Hell which appeared after the pronouncement of prof. Krystyna Pawłowicz, and also after a list of professors belonging to Academic Civil Clubs in Poznań, Kraków and Łódź, gives a foretaste of how important the matter is. Regardless to the fact that in the Polish reality it plays a role of a smoke curtain over a real, tragic situation of the country, the state of its economy, debts, etc. »

CATASTROPHE OF MILLER’S REPORT

ARTUR STELMASIAK

The official report concerning the Smoleńsk catastrophe is full of mistakes, lies and manipulation.

LENT – WHAT FOR?

Fr. JAROSŁAW GRABOWSKI

A simple but also a significant gesture of sprinkling ashes on heads started our Great Lent. In the Lent preface we find significant words: ‘Almighty God, You through the carnal Lent reduce defects, raise the spirit…’ In the difficult times of war when lots of people were forced to starve, one could feel an irony in these words, because there was a belief that the Lent takes away freedom from the man. »
