Polish Lent Tradition - In one church in Krakow exists an unusual fraternity established 400 years ago. This fraternity is called "Fraternity of Godīs Passion" or "Fraternity of Good Death". The members of this fraternity have a special ceremony on Good Friday before the Easter.
Polish Spring and Easter Rituals - Early spring was the most difficult time of a year for survival. The establishing of religious Lent in this time of a year was helping to survive this hard time and justify its moral sense and significance.
Smigus Dyngus and other Polish old Easter Traditions - Smigus Dyngus (shming-oos-ding-oos) is an unusual tradition of Easter Monday. It was traditionally the day when boys tried to drench girls with squirt guns, buckets of water, and much more.

Journey Through Lent - As we travel through this penitential season, some Lenten reflections...
Easter Season: Crucifixion - The Bible says, "Then they crucified Him..." (Mark 15:24). Through His undying, unconditional and perfect love for us, what exactly did Jesus have to endure?
Holy Week - As we begin Holy Week - the holiest of weeks for Christians - here are some links and resources to help us prepare for the most joyous of celebrations... Easter - the Resurrection of Our Lord, Jesus Christ!
Easter Season: Resurrection - Rejoice! Jesus is Risen! The season of Easter is a time to celebrate not only the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ, but also a time to give thanks and celebrate the great gift and hope of our own salvation - our own journey from death to life.
