A survey

Rosary in my life

Follow Christian truth

In the circle of Harry Potter's world of magic

Spiritual pilgrimage

Consequences of the sacramental 'yes'

'Lord, stay in our Families'

Fr Krzysztof Pawlina

'Lord, stay in our Families' is the motto of the 3rd National Eucharistic Congress. But Lord Jesus seems to be saying 'Family, stay with me'. Why is this so?

Historic meaning of Jesus

For every Christian the fundamental point of reference is Christ who is the centre of the history of salvation, the central point of reference of all salvific events. In his article entitled 'Historic meaning of Jesus' Fr Marian Rusecki writes about the turning point in the history of humankind, which was the birth of Jesus Christ. »

Let us look at the hands of the UN officers

In 1994, in Cairo, the United Nations International Conference on Population and Development was held.
