Giving Thanks for Daily Graces

For the mornings we awake
with a prayer you have given us to form,
with a song you have given us to sing,
with a voice to raise for justice,
with a seed of hope you have given us to plant,
with the stirrings of peace within us,
We give thanks, Lord of Abundance.

For the days when we recognize
a sign of God's grace in the world,
the Spirit in community,
the diverse faces of the human family,
the potential for transformation of sinful structures,
the possibilities of the Kingdom of God,
We give thanks, Lord of Abundance.

For the nights filled with
the grace of reflection,
the healing of contrition,
the security of your promises,
the renewal of rest,
the splendid silence of your stars,
We give thanks, Lord of Abundance.

Guide us through our days and nights
So we may create the life you call us to.
For this call, we give thanks, Lord of Abundance.

How the communists were planting agents in the West in 1989

Here is a fragment of an article by Prof. Przystawa which shows again that the issue of agents in Polonia is a real one:
" .................. It has been recently disclosed that during the years between the Martial Law and the Round Table Agreement, i.e. between 1982 and 1989, about 100 thousand new collaborators and informers of the secret police had been recruited. Such an unflagging work was aimed at selecting and dividing Solidarnosc people: to the one side those wise, sensible people who might be willing to understand the historical necessity and compromise, to the other, the less reasonable, uncompromising activists who should be gotten rid of. The latter task was made much easier by the fact that the Western Governments, the US first of all, were ready to assist the regime in this labor: they offered political asylum to the unwelcome element and many thousands of active members of Solidarnosc had easily obtained passport and one way tickets. Naturally, such a nice channel was also largely exploited by the secret police and many new agents had been sent and placed in the West under the Solidarnosc guise. ........."

The article was originally printed in the November issue of "News of Polonia" and is available at under the menu "Articles, Issues".
