SALT OF THE EARTH

OPEN TOTALITARISM

JAN MARIA JACKOWSKI

Blessed John Paul II had already warned over 20 years ago against the dangers of the contemporary democracy. In the encyclical ‘Centesimus annus’ published in 1991he wrote: ‘Today it is usually stated that the philosophy and an attitude convenient for democratic forms of politics are agnosticism and skeptical relativism, whereas those who feel convinced that they know the truth, and are definitely following it, are not, from the democratic point of view... »

WE DO NOT MEAN THIS KIND OF EUROPE

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

This confession of faith which is pronounced by the holy Roman-Catholic Church today, millions of believers express it with the mouth of the Holy Father Benedict XVI and with him. We believe in God. This faith joins us. It is also an expression of our prayer and a reference to God. God is and this is the most important for the man, so that he would not be without his resources, lonely in a crowd, without his justification. »

VICTIMS OF ABNORMAL IDEOLOGY

ANNA CICHOBŁAZIŃSKA

Among us there are no children with Down syndrome, in fact if there was a gene responsible for a psychic illness, after some time psychiatric hospitals and care houses for disabled people would be depopulated. Eugenics, reigning in the inter-war period and gathering a terrible harvest during the Second World War, in the majesty of law, took on a new form: euthanasia and abortion. »

I AM READY TO PASS AWAY

IN THE CISTERCIANS IN WILLOW SPRINGS

Fr. STANISŁAW RABIEJ

For many people, even those who are engaged in the life of Christian Church, the Order of Cistercians is rather associated with the life behind the monastery walls, where one can hear a liturgy prayer celebrated from the early morning to the evening. This picture can be also enriched with compulsory silence and agrarian work or writing-editorial work so that ‘ora et labora’ would be not only a beautiful calling from the far past. »

‘THE ARABIC SPRING’

Włodzimierz Rędzioch talks with professor Valentina Colombo

The revolutions, which have been touching the countries of the Northern Africa and the Middle East, were caused by a desire of freedom and justice. The ‘Arabic spring’ was also associated with much hope for democratization of this part of the world. Unfortunately, with time passing, there are more doubts about using the regained freedom – will it be useful in creating democratic countries or will it rather be used to introduce totalitarian regimes, the Islamic ones this time, where the law of Sharia will be obliging. »

‘THE STORY OF KOWALSKI FAMILY’

ANNA JANOWSKA

The film ‘The story of Kowalski family’ – whose projection took place on 14 January this year in the auditorium of the editorial office of the ‘Sunday’, is based on authentic events from before 70 years. This is a story about inhabitants of Ciepielów near Radom, inhabited by the Polish-Jewish community living in harmony for ages. During the Nazis occupation German gendarmes committed a macabre crime there: on 6 December 1942, in one of houses, 34 people were set on fire alive – these were Polish families with children and Jews who were hidden by Poles. »

HISTORICAL MOBILIZATION IN THE DEFENCE OF NORMALITY

Fr. Martin de la Ronciere

In the ‘Sunday’ of 9 December 2012 I described the growing movement of resistance against the planned act allowing for ‘marriage’ of the same sex couples and adopting children by them. On 17 November and 8 December 2012 the manifestations in various regions of France gathered 300 thousand people in total, half of them from Paris. At that time I was calling the readers of the ‘Sunday’ to pray, so that the mobilisation of the French for the nation-wide manifestation planned on 13 January would be ‘massive and effective’. »
