Beatification and canonisation

Fr Henryk Misztal

Recently there have been many articles and programmes about beatification and canonisation, especially referring to our great countrymen. But we do not always know the difference between them. »

The good of the spouses as the purpose of marriage

Fr Wojciech Goralski

The reflection of Vatican Council II concerning marriage let the Council Fathers realise that apart from the procreational-educational dimension (procreation and education of offspring) marriage has also a personalistic dimension, serving the spouses themselves. »

Short history of the cross

Fr Antoni Tatara

The cross appeared in ancient times. We encounter it in various cultures that were never related. In ancient Near East the cross was a sign of happiness. Then it was a sign of the biggest humiliation and disgrace. »

The Cult of Saints

Fr Henryk Misztal

The Year 2010 will probably bring the expected beatifications. One can ask about the motive of our awaiting for these beatifications and the reason for the cult of saints in the Church. »

Vocation: Christian educator

Fr Ireneusz Skubis talks to Br Wojciech Golonka, the Provincial of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools.

The white rabat (collar) symbolises the open book of the Gospel… I entered the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools in July 1982, so 27 years ago. »

Eucharistic miracles

Fr Ksawery Sokolowski

An accident or a miracle?

Fr Jozef Brzostowski

Irena from Detroit always associates Christmas with presents. Christmas Eve is the most beautiful day; she cannot wait to open the surprises. She was given a doll on that memorable day. »

Woman’s fortitude putting us to shame

Fr Lukasz Jaksik

The chronicles state briefly: she was born without any pain; no need for a midwife. But her death was completely different. Her last companions were pain, blood and humiliation. »

Victory over despair

Fr Lukasz Jaksik

Some non-initiated spectator could be astonished while visiting a church on 1 November. Instead of the mood of depression he will see gold colours of the liturgical robes, triumphant songs, incense and loud bell ringing. This is exactly one of the paradoxes of Christianity. »

Story of a real man

Katarzyna Woynarowska

Josephology is the youngest theological discipline. Just before the Second Vatican Council special educational centres were created in various parts of the world. They were to examine the figure and life of Saint Joseph. »

Can atheists be left in peace?

Fr Andrzej Przybylski

God forbid! We do not persecute anyone. I do not know what happens in particular cases but certainly the Church, proclaiming the teaching about man’s dignity and freedom, opposes any persecutions. »

Priesthood and clay vessels

Fr. Ireneusz Skubis

The sermon preached on 22 June 2009 in the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima and of Fr Pio in Terliczka near Rzeszow. It concerned the Year for Priests that has just been announced in the Catholic Church. »

The priest who revived faith

Fr Martin de La Ronciere

The Year for Priests began on the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Lord Jesus, 19 June 2009, which was also the World Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests. »

Priesthood is a high tower

Milena Kindziuk talks to Fr Jozef Augustyn, SJ, a known retreat-giver and spiritual director, about sins and sanctity, indulgencies for priests, crises and women.

As anyone can. Some mediaeval artists, who were sharp-tongued towards ecclesiastical authorities, placed them in hell even during their lifetime. »

‘This mystery…’ (Eph 5: 32)

Love sanctified by the grace of the sacrament

Fr Wojciech Goralski
