On a personal level, I've known many Polish Americans some of whom were born and raised in Poland. In my experience and to generalize I have found the Polish to be hard working, dedicated to the Catholic faith and their women are lovely.
However, there are exceptions. This type can be described as small minded, confrontational and arrogant. You know who you are and if you post on this thread I will remove your post.

Pope Francis Says Sex Abuse Victims Are Slandering Catholic Bishop They Say Helped Commit Sex …

@Uncle Joe The issues are centered around Liberation Theology which is the communist movement in the Church. Started I believe by Oscar Romero who was a buddy of Our Holy Father. THIS IS THE MAIN PROBLEM because it puts politics and SOCIAL JUSTICE above the Salvation of Souls which is the main purpose for Jesus's Catholic Church on earth.
The abuse Crisis has fed this problem like gas on fire. Just like in the former USA. Nothing new here on that!
Bachlet is a out and out immoral commie who has children by several men in un married relations and who was a terrorist in the 1980s. Known for blowing things up type Terrorist. Just like Arafat or Fidel. Think in terms of Hillary Clinton (same nylon pant suit) speaking Spanish. On a side note they are great buddies and Abortion fans...... which is also appalling since Bachelt is a pediatrician.
As to the questions:
Is there a free and open media in Chile that presents more than simply the “party line” of political issues in the country?

Dear Jim,
A poll by Santiago-based think tank Latinobarometro this month showed that the number of Chileans calling themselves Catholics fell to 45 percent last year, from 74 percent in 1995. www.reuters.com/…/pope-francis-ar…
Is this the result of Communist influence or something more? Communism is surely the enemy of Catholicism or any other religion. But, is it the main cause of the decline of Roman Catholicism in Chile? Has the abuse scandal and coverups had an impact as it has around the world?
Abortion in all forms is still illegal and heavily criticized in Chile. I've read that churches look out over almost every plaza and the majority of Chileans celebrate Easter and Christmas.
However, underneath these devout Catholic characteristics lies a culture that has deviated from this once strong Spanish religious influence. While Chile may be culturally and politically Catholic, the majority of its citizens are not practicing nor do they believe in Catholic doctrines or thought. …More

A small twist to the cognitive testing..Every priest in every parish would have their own section of the parish website where each priest would list his CV, IQ, grade point average in school, years in ministry etc. In addition, those pages would include testimonials from laity who attended that parish and would give their own impressions of each particular priest. If one priest is a shining star, that should be noted. If another priest is not what one would call the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree, that too should be indicated.
Are the priest's sermons 10 minutes or less? Are those sermons interesting or will he put you to sleep? Is he active in parish functions or not? Have his sermons touched upon the crucial issues of the times such as but not limited to artificial birth control, abortion, homosexuality and so on?
In larger parishes, each priest would list the times of the masses that he will be offering on the following Sunday or holiday. In that way …More

It is painfully obvious that the Catholics who have offered their critical analysis of the artwork depicted with this post have absolutely no clue with respect to the visual arts including but not limited to art history and art appreciation.
For the “it's gotta be Catholic all the time all stars” you need to keep in mind that not everything in this world is or has been written, produced, manufactured or, in this case, painted, by - unlike you super catholics - a traditional Roman Catholic who attends the Latin Rite mass, who loathes Pope Francis and who has a visceral contempt for anything and anyone who is not Catholic or who might suggest something that could be misconstrued as being offensive to Catholics. There are numerous benign things and events in this world that will offend your delicate uninformed sensibilities (like this painting included above) but, guess what, too bad. Get over yourselves and your narrow mindedness. The world is bigger than your own limited ideas …More

during his life here on earth was always portrayed and symbolized by true Catholics as alert, vigilant and cautious man
So then, Joseph never slept??
For this reason a sleeping Joseph whilst a pagan deity - caring god - cares over Mary and Infant Jesus peacefully sleeping in his arms is a fake depiction.
Imagine yourself for a moment in the same situation. There is no “safe” place. You are in a foreign land with who knows what kind of dangers lurking in the black night. I doubt that Mary and the Child literally did sleep under the sphnix but so what if they did? It would have been the most prudent thing to do under those circumstances.

Rafał_Ovile Actually, as a layman, you have the duty of making your concerns known to your bishop and to the Pope. I would suggest, though, that in the matter validity of the Papal election we keep our opinions to ourselves. It is certianly way above my pay grade. We will answer for every word to the Lord Himself especially those that may cause others to lose their faith. Outside of writing directly to the HF then there is only prayer and sacrifice. We can entrust ourselves to the Lord and His Immaculate Mother and wait for them to act.

Francis, for this holiday period, asked that a small card be printed and distributed, which on its reverse side carries the inscription, “The fruit of war,” running above the pope’s signature.
The front side of the card displays a picture taken by American photographer Joseph Roger O’Donnell, a Marine who worked for four years after the atomic blasts in Hiroshima and Nagasaki documenting their impact. The shot shows a young Japanese boy standing in line at a crematorium with his dead younger brother on his back. Link

The pagan japanese worshipped their emporer as their god. The numerous dead japanese pagans, was a result of them fanatically offering their lives to the will of their false god, their emporer hirohito. The foolish japanese are still overwhelmingly pagan. If i remember correctly, in japan shintoism is the predominant spiritual beliefs, including honoring other dead japanese pagans.
Jesus teaches us that, He Is The Resurrection, He Is Life.

Bishop Schneider Offers Hope Amidst Crisis Permitted by “Divine Providence”

As the ecclesiastical crisis continues to deepen in 2017, I have found myself facing a certain exhaustion; a feeling that, while knowing the gates of hell will not prevail against the Church, that Christ will have the final victory, there is no respite from the near-constant series of assaults from the enemies of God’s truth. I know that many of you feel the same way.
With this in mind, I reached out to Bishop Athanasius Schneider, who is not only one of the most learned and fearless prelates in the Church today, but also, in my opinion, one of the most holy. He is a man who exudes the peace of Christ, even while being among the most outspoken in his analysis of the gravity of our present situation.
In short, he seemed the perfect man to tell us: How should we handle this? Where do we go from here? In the following interview, I sought to ask him the questions I thought many of you would also wish to ask. His answers do not disappoint.
