What do you celebrate on 25 December?

Christmas is one of the biggest feasts. I am a Catholic and on this day I celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. God the Father sent His Son to earth so that Jesus Christ - the second Person of the Trinity - would save people.

“In my interior life I look with one eye into the abyss of my misery and wickedness, which I am, and with the other eye I look into the abyss of Your mercy, O God.”(Saint M. Faustina Kowalska)

We are weak and prone to sin, we fall all the time, but we must not give in to sadness and discouragement. God is greater than our sin and our weakness, let us ask Him for His power and His mercy on us. The Lord God gives us power when we ask for it, and in the Holy Sacraments there is our help from God. Through the sacrament of penance we can be reconciled to Him and reconciled to the Church.

Featured

Today I will address two topics: achieving personal greatness and working with God's grace to achieve spectacular goals. We were created for great things, yet many of us, over time, lock ourselves into our so-called comfort zone and accept life as it is, no longer dreaming of growing and achieving something great for ourselves and the world around us.

"It follows from the role given to the angels by God that they need to be asked not only for help in difficult situations and defence against evil, but also, since they communicate God's will, for a clear understanding of what God's plans are for us." (Niedziela nr 39/2022)

“It’s important to start living now, because we don’t know how much of this life we have left.”

"priest Kaczkowski said that we should 'live life on a full petard'. The director responds to the question of what 'life on a full petard' means to him. He answers as follows: "For me, 'living life on a full petard' means making the most of every moment, every encounter, 100 per cent. The time I experience and dedicate to myself and my loved ones is to be fully qualitative and unique." The director also adds, "The message of our film is also that we need to start living now, because we don't know how much of this life we have left."
