Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute...

Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn from the truth.

Dear Michał Kalina,

I clicked on your link:

Diocese of Białystok and Gdańsk...

... and I found this picture:



Do you know if the renovations on this wonderful little Church have been completed yet?

I would love to see more pictures of this Church!

Well, I would really love to visit it (and many other Churches) in person someday... but 'til then I will have to settle for photos.

Thanks,

These were not 'renovations' but 'construction works'. They were completed (at least externally, IDK what is happening inside that Church because I visited it once a few years ago).

This was taken today, Saturday evening at Vespers.  The Cross was about to be brought out (3rd Sunday of Great Lent - Sunday of the Cross).

It was a cloudy day and the church was dark.  However, when the priest opened the Royal Gates, all of a sudden a shaft of sunlight broke through the clouds and shining through a window illuminated the flower bedecked Cross, lying on the Altar.

There was an audible gasp from the faithful, for the Cross seemed to "glow", and it was the ONLY thing that the sun was shining on.
