Często, gdy mama spodziewa się dziecka, opisuje się ją jako "kobietę ciężarną". Z pewnością dziewięć miesięcy oczekiwań na cud narodzin upragnionego syna lub córki, stanowi dla kobiety określony, niemały wysiłek. Czy jednak -- także z tego powodu -- nie lepiej mówić wtedy, że doświadcza ona stanu błogosławionego?

Nie tylko pozwoli to znosić łatwiej stojące przed całą nową rodziną wyzwania, ale także -- po uświadomieniu sobie, jak słowa kształtują Życie -- od początku jej błogosławić.

Human soul and the issue of life

The Catholics believe that each and every human being has a soul. Surprisingly, atheists -- who for the most time think that there is not a bit of such spiritual element in us, humans -- often share believers' point of view on the soul existence when it comes to debating life issues.

They often say to pro-life scientists or philosophers: "We do not know when the soul is given to a human being, therefore we can not decide when does the tissue become a child".

Perhaps that is true, yet the human life should be protected no matter of one's particular views on the soul. You can be a Jew, Musilm, Catholic or non believer...And still the most important thing is that you are a living person and therefore shall enjoy the fullness of your rights.

Cztery ściany(PL)

Na modlitwie, otoczony przez cztery ściany
Niezrozumienia, odrzucenia, bólu i braku ukojenia --

Patrzę na krzyż.

Dobrze Jezu, że wśród wypełnionych Miłością czterech ścian, nigdy nie jestem samotny;
Dzięki, Panie mój, któryś zapragnął objąć swymi ramionami, wszystkie pokoje świata.

Our Future, Our Goal

Among a few arguments in the arsenal of so-called pro-choice movement you will find the following one:

"Some children, if born, will have poor future".

This argument is dangerous for two reasons: if one accepts it, he or she discriminates impoverished or disabled people at the same time. It is so, for if -- as some assume -- there's no place in this world for an unborn child with the "poor future", why should there be any place for a person with the "poor here and now"?

Finally, neither wellness nor poverty should be the final goal for us, Christians: We all shall aim at heaven -- just like our Lord and His Mother.

Happy Birthday, Mary!

Neither normal nor cool -- just the best one...

Blessed Margaret of Castello, the patroness of disabled and abandoned people, had a very difficult live. However she suffered a lot, only once she complained to Jesus about that. At that moment she asked her Lord and Saviour the following question: Why can't I lead a normal life?

Jesus replied to her calmly : Did I have such life?

Perhaps you too are the one, who wants to live so-called ordinary life:

- would it not be cool to get rid of my cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, or cancer? - you asked yourself many times.

Yes, it would be cool...At least until you ask Jesus about this idea and conclude that probably never a cool man had entered the heaven.
