Will this fire move our hearts?

Artur Stelmasiak

Saint Nicholas - Bishop, not a dwarf

Artur Stelmasiak

Formerly the Bishop of Myra was one of the most important Christian saints. Today it has become a ‘saint of commerce’. The present times have deprived him of his vestment, mitre and crosier. As you may easily guess it is the American promotion specialists that invented ‘a saint dwarf’. »

Life after life

Artur Stelmasiak

There is a need to instil in people's hearts, especially in the hearts of the young, a genuine and deep appreciation of the need for brotherly love, a love that can find expression in the decision to become an organ donor »

This is not the first time the Norwegian Committee has made a scandalous decision

Wlodzimierz Redzioch

Tragedy within four walls

Artur Stelmasiak

Small, defenceless, completely trustful children, who were under the care of their relatives. They were physically abused. If they had been still alive they could have better lives and loving parents. If... However, for many it was too late to help. »

I shout: Europe! I am Polish!

Katarzyna Woynarowska

People die, we remember them

Katarzyna Woynarowska

Is the state against family?

Andrzej Tarwid

The priority of the ruling party should be an active and long-term pro-family policy. The economic and social development depends on it. Unfortunately, many-generational families are today strongly supported in poorer countries than us. »

How to live after abortion

Milena Kindziuk

Autumn is approaching, the autumn of life...

Andrzej Tarwid

All demographers agree that the number of old people in Poland is increasing because Poles live longer. For the last fifteen years the average lifespan has stretched out by four years. The problem of aging population is one of the most important problems we must unavoidably face. In several years every fifth Pole will be over 60 years old. »

Capital punishment

Dominik Jabs

When the news about another macabre murder is spread all over Poland or when we learn that some offender has received a lenient sentence the subject of the death penalty returns. Politicians, feature writers and even theologians present various attitudes concerning the legitimacy of this verdict. »

Boundary that cannot be crossed

Urszula Buglewicz talks to Rev. Professor Andrzej Szostek, Director of the Chair of Ethics at the Faculty of Philosophy of the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin.

Another Rubicon has been crossed

Fr Piotr Kieniewicz
