Can a person of faith be a soldier?

Can a person of faith be a soldier?

Chaplain’s Corner Padre Andrew Whitman, CD This is a question often asked. It is a question I have had to answer for myself: before serving as chaplain, I was a gunner, and did a tour in Kandahar. Could I be there and support that mission knowing that people would be killed as a result of my actions? Could I reconcile my faith with my profession as a soldier? If the answer to this question isRead More

Back to School

Chaplain’s Corner Padre Zibby Jonczyk It is hard to believe that summer is almost over and it is time for many of our kids to go back to school. It is that time of the year we tend to welcome with mixed emotions. Another summer is almost over. Days are getting shorter; the nights are drawing in faster, and although we can still feel the warmth of sun on our skin, that cool morning breezeRead More

Get out and enjoy the holiday season

Chaplain’s Corner Padre Zibby Jonczyk What do you desire? In the last few years my wife and I have enjoyed watching Netflix series together.

Chaplain’s Corner Padre Marcin Rosinski It is hard to remember the important things in life. Our lives are often filled with so many activities, distractions and attractions that we sometimes forget what it is all about. Well, what is it all about? Are we just living from moment to moment, being pushed from one thing to another? It’s sad to hear people talk about their lives as nothing but a string of activities. There doesn’tRead More

Forgiveness can be better than a cleansing quarrel

Forgiveness can be better than a cleansing quarrel

Chaplain’s Corner Padre Marcin Rosinski I do not know about you, but forgiveness is not easy for me. It is much easier to sulk, shout in anger or not talk to the other person for a few hours (although for some it is not true, their limit is probably 20 minutes, because somehow they cannot remain silent – then the phase of a cleansing quarrel follows). Anyway, it’s much easier to get mad straight away,Read More
