This chaplaincy (erected in 2010) has its roots in the indult Mass granted in 1999 by the then-Archbishop of Wroclaw, Henryk Cardinal Gulbinowicz.

    Wrocław (Wratislavia), not Breslau. In our church we keep and promote traditional Polish piety and customs. And probably first Masses was celebrated in Silesia before 1000 AD by missionaries from the Great Moravia.

    And not by Polish Communists but by Russians. They decided abt this. It is not only "mistake" in @Lorenz's post.

  7. @Lorenz:
    German imperialism started World War II. Germans killed over a million Polish Catholics, most of them civilians. Germans are the direct reason that the Polish capital Warsaw was utterly destroyed, and all its inhabitants expelled after Rising '44. Germans are the direct cause of Poland falling under communist Soviet rule for half a century.
    Germans polluted Polish soil by building on it their extermination factories, of which Auschwitz was the largest.
    How dare you speak of "Polish Communist authorities" and "Polish colonists?" Germans should beg Poles for forgiveness for what they have done. If you are a Catholic, you should learn about what Germans did to Poles in World War II before you offer opinions about what has been going on in Wroclaw.

  8. Lorenz,

    If there is something I will never tolerate here, that is it.
