THE CHRIST OF POLAND (Framed Giclee)
I’ve been studying A Course in Miracles for more than 30 years. Tara Singh’s guidance was important in the success of seventeen of them. He had a profound understanding of this modern-day psycho-spiritual text, and he was able to guide individuals into a condition of consciousness where they might feel the total inside themselves, which is the goal of ACIM. We are hearing straight from ACIMis Jesus, the Christ, who is speaking directly from the absolute. According to current standards, it is the unabridged truth.
Tara Singh, as well as the Voice of theCourse, which is the voice of Jesus, was constantly in the present now.
It was comprised of an Altar, as well as portraits of Holy Beings put on the walls of the space as decoration.
The images of Holy Beings adorning the walls provided illumination.
- I realized early on in my seventeen years with Tara Singh that he was my life teacher somewhere along the line.
- What he stated confirmed the reality of what Jesus had spoken in the Gospel of Acim.
- He definitely jolted me out of my sleep.
- He dispels the darkness that exists within a person and sparks the light that exists within him.
Christ always present.
As I previously stated, Jesus was always there in the prayer room with us. He was shown in a painting by Heinrich Hofmann, which stood guard over the Altar. In Tara Singh’s opinion, this picture of Jesus Christ is the finest work he has ever done. Furthermore, the copy in the Prayer Room was unique and original in every way. Many of the copies of this work are not genuine copies of the original. They lack the calm and joy of the original, as well as the X-factor that brings this picture to life and makes it feel alive and present.
- This one is a little softer.
- When I first started painting Jesus, I utilized Hofmann’s Jesus as a model for my own work.
- It was a spontaneous moment of inspiration.
- When they saw me paint, they sensed the presence of the artist.
- I painted Jesus all over the world, just as I painted Babaji and the Divine Mother, as well as other figures.
- They were sufficient for me.
- They constantly brought a fresh perspective to each picture, making it one-of-a-kind.
- This giclee of the Dream Team, seen below, is available for purchasehere.
- The middle Jesus was painted in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, while the Divine Mother on the right was painted in Valencia, Spain, and was one of my very first paintings.
We have one of these “Dream Team” giclee prints hanging over our front entrance at the moment. They seem to shield our flat from any harmful energy that could try to enter. So far, I have not observed any goblins in our flat, indicating that They are carrying out their responsibilities.
“Jesus of Poland”
The eyes of Christ of Poland are more feminine. Krzysztof and Aga’s house in Szczecin, Poland, served as the location for his painting. I went with a fairly straightforward color scheme. There are just a few colors. The color of her hair is red. I painted Him on a piece of primed linen and set Him aside. I managed to get the tone exactly perfect, and the tenderness shone through. Anka Lalatovic purchased Him in Denmark because I painted Him on an un-stretched surface, which allowed me to fold Him up and transport Him to her home country.
So it goes without saying that I was overjoyed that she had found Him.
And, without fail, they are able to sell themselves in a magical manner.
Why paint Jesus?
The reason I paint Jesus is to establish a personal connection with Him. There is a sense of calm that comes over me while I am painting with Him in mind. I have to be completely present with the painting, as well as acutely conscious of the presence of Christ. When I am more conscious of my surroundings, my painting progresses more smoothly, with greater ability to communicate presence. I make an effort to put everything else out of my thoughts and concentrate solely on the painting itself. There are no further requirements that apply.
- The objective of the Icon Paintings in ancient times, and it is the same aim I have for my work now.
- This Christ of Poland accomplishes just that for me.
- It’s always new and exciting to me.
- As I have come to know Him via A Course in Miracles, it is a way for me to pay tribute to the years I spent studying with Tara Singh, my A Course in Miracles teacher, for whom I am eternally thankful.

This isn’t anything I made up. Christian Today reports that the Polish government has recently recognized Jesus Christ as the country’s monarch, which my Polish acquaintance Malgorzata has confirmed: “Jesus has been proclaimed King of Poland at a ceremony attended by the country’s president Andrzej Duda.” It took place at the Church of Divine Mercy in Krakow on Saturday, and the ritual was repeated in churches across the country on Sunday.
- The service was shown live on Polish television.
- The prayer “In our hearts, govern us, Christ!” was recited throughout the event.
- … In our schools and institutions, Christ has the last say!
- … We swear to preserve your holy worship and proclaim Thy royal splendor, Christ our King, as long as we are alive.” “We leave the Polish people and their leaders to your care,” the letter concluded.
- To the greater glory of the Most Holy Trinity and for the salvation of mankind, we must rule in our country as well as in every other nation.
As a result of a revelation received by a Polish nurse named Rosalia Zelkova, who, in the early twentieth century, heard voices telling her that Jesus demanded that he be recognized as the King of Poland as a condition for the salvation of Poland during the upcoming war, she became known as the “Polish Queen.” What a conceited jerk Jesus turned out to be!
- This proclamation was met with little opposition now that the Catholic Church wields enormous authority in Poland, thanks to the approval of the new administration.
- The event was attended by more than half of the Polish cabinet.
- The situation in our country is more ludicrous than it has ever been since the fall of Communism, and we are on the verge of becoming a theocratic state.
- It gets better (or worse) as time goes on!
- In contrast, did you know that we already have a Queen of Poland, and that she is none other than Mary, the mother of Jesus?
- Three hundred years later, on August 26, 1956, in the presence of about one million Christians, the Polish Church hierarchy reaffirmed the promise to her as Polish Queen.
As a result, we now have a monarchy with both a Queen and a King governing. What PolishWikipedia has to say about it (sadly, there isn’t a translated version available): Ginger K. is a member of the Polish royaltyh/t.
The month of January, 2019 ALL OF YOU IN OUR CENTRAL DIOCESAN FAMILY WISH YOU A HAPPY NEW YEAR, AND WELCOME TO THE YEAR OF DISCIPLESHIP IN OUR HOLY CHURCH! According to the recommendations of our national PNCC Future Direction Sub-Committee, which was just presented to us. â€¦. As our Lord stated to His followers throughout His public ministry, “Follow Me,” He continues to invite us to follow Him and desires for our relationship with Him to deepen and strengthen as the days, months, and years pass.
- In order to better understand the concept of discipleship, let’s start with the basics.
- The way they spelled out the requirements of a mason impressed me as I grew more immersed in the story of this society’s foundation and progress.
- Our Future Directions Sub-Committee has began setting out these expectations, and they will continue to do so for the rest of the calendar year.
- â€Worship â€” We worship God as a community through the person of Jesus Christ.
- The people of God gather in the home of God to worship and honor their heavenly Father (Psalm 150).
- Grow â€“ We join a parish organization, a Bible study, or the School of Christian Living in order to advance in our faith and our relationship with Jesus.
- In the eyes of Jesus, synagogue was a place for discernment, for studying the scriptures, and for developing in the knowledge and love of God and one’s neighbor.
Mission â€” We are called to love and care for our fellow human beings.
Jesus had a soft spot in His heart for the poor, the disadvantaged, the outcast, and the lost, among other people.
As Christians, we strive to love and serve others, and we feel that this is essential in our Christian walk.
Some people are born with the ability to educate or lead others.
Some people have the gift of compassion, and they like sending cards to those who are ill.
Yes, everyone of us has been endowed with a God-given skill, talent, or aptitude that we may utilize to further the glory of our heavenly Father.
Everything we have and are is a gift from God, and our offering expresses our gratitude for this gift.
Providing a regular amount of our income as an act of thanksgiving, an act of obedience, and an act of covenantal agreement with God are all aspects of our giving.
In order to better understand these five expectations as we embark on a life of Catholic Christian discipleship, let us take some time to consider them.
God has promised that he will be with us at all times.
Following Jesus as his disciple is our loyal response to this God who â€so loves the world.â€ (John 3:16) (See John 3:16 for more information.) Everyone be blessed with peace and grace. Bishop Bernard is a Catholic priest who serves in the Diocese of Rochester, New York.

St. Maria Faustina Kowalska and the cult of Divine Mercy
Divine Mercy devotion, which has its origins in Poland, has become one of the most significant and widely practiced types of Catholic devotion at the end of the twentieth and beginning of the twenty-first century, according to the Catholic Church. If there is one aspect of the cult that is universal, it is that it occurs at 3 p.m. on the hour of Divine Mercy, whether in Latin America or Japan, Australia or Poland. At 3 p.m., believers recite the chaplet prayer left by Faustina Kowalska, a Polish religious nun who belonged to the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy.
- written by Pawe Skibiski Saint Faustina is a saint who is venerated in Italy.
- As a result, she finished from elementary school with only three courses and began working as a household helper at the age of 16, first in Aleksandrów ódzki, subsequently in ód, and finally in Warsaw.
- Finally, Helena was admitted into the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy, on the condition that she pay a dowry for which she labored for a year as part of the stipulation.
- Her initial vows were taken at agiewniki in 1928, and her eternal vows were taken there in 1933.
- She was born in Vilnius, Lithuania, and died in Krakow, Poland.
- She worked as a porter, a gardener, and a salesclerk in a bakery that was run by the order, among other positions.
- While receiving insights, he asked Faustina to paint a painting of Merciful Jesus with the aspiration prayer “Jesus, I put my confidence in You!” on the back.
When Faustina was commanded to organize the festival of Divine Mercy, which would take place on the first Sunday following Easter, this occurred at the same time as the revelations took place.
In turn, the first painting of the Merciful Jesus, which was commanded by Mary during spiritual experiences, was completed in 1934 by a local artist.
At modern times, this image may be seen in the Vilnius chapel of Divine Mercy, where it is one of the two most popular renditions of the image in existence.
The figure of Jesus, clad in a white robe and staring directly at the observer, is depicted in the painting.
From the heart, two rays radiate: a brilliant one, which represents water, and a crimson one, which represents the blood that poured from the wounded side of the crucified Christ.
She also received a particular prayer, known as the chaplet of Divine Mercy, which she used to start the congregation.
Unfortunately, Faustina became afflicted with TB not long after this incident.
She passed away in October 1938 and was laid to rest at agiewniki.
Even though she did not have any apparent scars on her body, she was experiencing bodily anguish in the locations of the crucified Jesus’ wounds – in her hands and feet and on her side, as well as on her head, where the crown of thorns had been placed.
When she saw people who were in a state of sin or who were preparing to commit a transgression, she had the same feeling.
She also left behind one of the most important writings in twentieth-century Catholic mysticism, the diary of Faustina del Rio.
The notes were taken as directed by her confessors, who were Father Micha Sopoko in the first instance, and with the approval of the superiors of her order in the second.
While there are also detailed details of her life in the nunnery, as well as of her bodily and spiritual suffering, the primary focus is on the internal life of this future saint.
The diary has become one of the most widely translated works of Polish literature in recent years.
Saint Faustina Kowalska is a Polish saint (public domain) Few words should be said about the aforementioned confessor, Father Micha Sopoko, who is also the most influential preacher of the Divine Mercy cult in the world today.
After the Second World War, he worked as a lecturer at the Major Seminary in Bialystok, which was located within the borders of post-war Poland but was part of the archdiocese of Vilnius at the time of the war.
During this time, he was had to conceal himself outside of the city under a fictitious identity.
His actions were inspired by the orders Faustina had obtained and he established a new congregation of the Sisters of Merciful Jesus in Vilnius in 1942.
The adoration of Divine Mercy has a long history.
The Second World War provided a significant impetus for this type of commitment to flourish.
The cult of God’s Mercy is still practiced today.
Soldiers of General Wladyslaw Anders’ army, which was made primarily of people who had been spared from Soviet exile, were able to propagate their commitment around the world, as the force first traveled to the Middle East, then to Italy and Great Britain.
In Poland, the cult was expanding its influence primarily through the town of agiewniki, where the aforementioned artwork by Hya was discovered, as well as the burial site of Faustina, who died there in 1938, and where the picture was discovered.
It was in 1946 that the Pope of Poland, Cardinal August Hlond, petitioned the Vatican to create Divine Mercy Sunday as a national holiday in Poland.
The visions recounted in the Diary were not validated by canonical sources.
They made disparaging remarks against the kinds of Divine Mercy devotion practiced by, among others, the Metropolitan of Vilnius, who is based in Bialystok, Archbishop Romuald Jabrzykowski, and the Bishop of Przemysl, Franciszek Barda At its zenith in 1958, the Holy Office prohibited the adoration of Divine Mercy in the forms recommended by Faustina Kowalska, bringing the dispute to a close.
- Another factor was the occurrence of genuine abnormalities in the cult’s development as a result of a lack of adequate theological contemplation on this kind of devotion.
- In 1958, Karol Wojtyla was named auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Kraków, a position he held until his death in 2006.
- The worship of Divine Mercy, as well as the distribution of images of the compassionate Jesus and the writings of Faustina Kowalska, were all prohibited by the Vatican’s Dicastery of the Apostolic Signatura.
- The Vatican dicastery also sent a warning to cult promoter Sopoko, telling him not to spread the cult any further.
- It was carried on in a number of places, including agiewniki, with the permission of Archbishop Eugeniusz Baziak.
- (Photo courtesy of Higroskopijny; CC BY-SA 3.0 license) In 1965, Archbishop Karol Wojtyla, who was the Metropolitan of Kraków at the time of Faustina Kowalska’s beatification, began the process of her canonization.
- At that point, the examination of Faustina’s works resumed, this time under the supervision of a censor, Prof.
Pallottine priests have also made significant contributions to the subject of extending the justification of Divine Mercy’s theological worship, which has received widespread praise.
Essentially, he wanted to demonstrate that Faustina’s writings did not contain anything that was in violation of Catholic doctrine and morality.
As early as October of the same year, Cardinal Wojtyla, a vocal proponent of the Divine Mercy cult, was elevated to the position of pope as John Paul II.
The Pope even acknowledged that the promotion of the worship of God’s Mercy was an unique mission assigned to him.
Consequently, the cult of Divine Mercy saw fast expansion.
After a lengthy debate, the Polish Church was granted permission to celebrate the Divine Mercy on the second Sunday of Easter beginning in 1995.

The beatification of Pope John Paul II took place on Divine Mercy Sunday, May 1, 2011, at the Vatican, drawing nearly a million pilgrims to Rome (photo: Wojciech Grzedzinski and Piotr Molecki/KPRP).
Faustina were kept, as well as the site where the image of God’s Mercy by Adolf Hya was kept, and which became famous for its favors and worship.
After visiting the Krakow sanctuary on his last visit, Pope Francis referred to it as the “global hub of Mercy devotion.” He performed the solemn entrustment of the world to God’s Mercy in that location, as well as the consecration of the new temple.
Since then, thousands of Divine Mercy shrines have been built throughout the world.
Pope John Paul II and Sopoko, both of whom are referred to as “apostles of God’s compassion,” were both raised to the position of saint.
Sopoko, on the other hand, who died in 1975, was canonized in 2008.

The country’s holiest Catholic shrine was host to a liturgy during which the country’s bishop lauded the administration for carrying out the ministry of Jesus Christ. He also compared two ministers to the Evangelists, while simultaneously defending them against accusations of heresy. Commentators, including many from inside Poland’s Catholic community, were taken aback by his statements and expressed their displeasure, arguing that such blatantly political remarks were unacceptable in this context.
- He complimented the authorities for their efforts in dealing with the situation, noting that “it is the committed service of our administration that has reduced the output of the sower of death in our nation.” He also expressed gratitude to the people of the country for their support.
- According to Dugosz, “two members of our administration, chosen by the majority of Poles, reflect the charisma of two of the Evangelists.” “The Evangelist MateuszPrime Minister Morawiecki is looking for the life of our nation in order for it to live better,” the Prime Minister said.
- “We express our gratitude to the Mother of God for their assistance.” Bishop Dugosz went on to defend Szumowski, who, in his capacity as health minister, has been the public face of Poland’s response to the coronavirus epidemic.
- “We should express our thanks to Minister Professor Szumowski and those individuals, in spite of the radical viewpoints taken by certain Poles, who have a negative attitude toward his acts.” “I’m taking care of those who are suffering during the epidemic,” Dugosz remarked.
- The bishop reacted by stating that people should strive to be like “biblical heroes” in today’s world.
- He stated that “such utterances are not only foolish in that they involve the Church in a political controversy, but they are also un-Catholic.” “We believe in God, not in the PiS,” Terlikowski stated further.
- This type of language is not only non-catholic, but it is also non-religious.
We place our trust in God, not in the PiS, as we read in Ewangelia Mateusza and ukasza, rather than in the speeches of the prime minister and the ministers.
— Tomasz Terlikowski (@tterlikowski) is a social media influencer.
He agreed that the comments were inappropriate.
“This has taken me by surprise, made me sad, and made me angry.
It was such a surprise to hear Bishop Dugosz’s remarks that there were even widespread concerns that the television footage displaying them had been doctored, according to Konkret24, which reported on the incident.
According to Radio Maryja, which carried the service on Thursday with sister television channel TV Trwam, the retired bishop was being targeted by “left-liberal media and organizations.” Radio Maryja backed the emeritus bishop against what it called “left-liberal media and organizations.” As he noted in an interview with the station, “As a catechist, not a politician, I wanted to draw attention to the crucial reality that all events in both the Old and New Testaments are expressed in the lives of everyone of us.” Today, we take on the roles and behaviors of biblical heroes, and the Lord uses our life as a canvas on which to paint the tale of salvation.
The conservative PiS party, which now governs the country, is often perceived to have a tight ties with the church.
“There is nothing but nihilism without the church,” he said. Ben Koschalka is a translator and the assistant editor at Notes from Poland, where he works as a translator and editor. He is originally from the United Kingdom and has been a resident in Kraków since 2005.
