December 14, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) Mateusz Morawiecki, the new Prime Minister of Poland, spoke about re-Christianizing Europe during the first interview after his nomination. His Law and Justice party has been under constant attack by the EU political elites.
Last Friday Morawiecki, 49, was appointed Prime Minister by President Andrzej Duda. He replaced Beata Szydło, who had served only half a term. Morawiecki had been Minister of Development, Minister of Finance and Deputy Prime Minister in Szydłos government. He was sworn into office last Monday, and gave his first interview the previous Friday.
The topics of the conversation with a Catholic media outlet Telewizja Trwam ranged from the economic and social development of Poland, international relations, and the EU. Throughout the interview, Morawiecki made several religious references.
Speaking about Polish mining and the problematic EU climate policy, he said, we want to transform Europe. He digressed that his dream is to re-Christianize Europe. Morawiecki specified that, unfortunately, in many places, not only are Christmas Carols not sung, but churches are empty, and some are even turned into museums.
Morawiecki welcomed the interviewer, Redemptorist Brother Piotr Dettlaff, with the greeting Szczęść Boże. Impossible to directly translate into English, the phrase was a traditional way of greeting working farmers and essentially meant God bless you in your work. It is still used today when addressing priests and members of religious orders.

Greet one another with these words as a way of offering your best wishes to your neighbors. These words..........

Be ready, Poland. The EU is going to come after you with everything they’ve got.
The same for America.
I pray for revival. Without a spiritual awakening, any economic gains we have are going to be for naught.
We must repent, recognize our sinfulness, and beg for mercy.
“Mild he lays His glory by,
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth,
born to give us second birth.”
My money's on those "masters" being able to force this Prime Minister to his knees...or out of office entirely!
The leadership overall that Polish society has shown in the last 30 years is just incredible. They helped lead the eastern bloc out of bondage. They sent a Pope to redirect the entire church and help Christianity in general be more seriously considered a force in the secular world. They lead in military commitment by like sized nations.
I have no Polish ancestry of which I am aware but boy those that do should take great pride in what they have shown us.
Well, maybe, I don’t know. But it would seem like the godless lunatics in the EU make their own case for separation.
The Poles get it right AGAIN!
And he is absolutely correct.
A lot depends on what we do here. I wish we knew a way to hit the streets in SUPPORT of Mr. Trump.
For years those of us with Polish ancestry were the brunt of Pollock jokes.
He who laughs last........
Tommy Robinson at Polish march - Poles saved Europe in 1683 & saved Britain in WW2
I agree...no Polish blood in me either but Poland is clearly leading the way in terms of decency and courage!
Make those EU bureaucrats jokes.
My ancestry is English, German and Swedish. I worked in construction where a Swedish-Screwdriver is a term applied to a hammer.
