    "The legend says that Templars, under cover of darkness, sunk a wooden box with golden coins and the Holy Grail," Marek Karolczak, a local historian, told CNN Travel. The lake mentioned in the stories dried out long ago, "and the treasure has either been stolen or lost forever in the swamp," he added.Now, archaeologists are investigating one of the chapels the order built in western Poland upon its return from the Holy Land. The small village of Chwarszczany, in the region of West Pomeranian, is home to the chapel of St. Stanislaus, constructed from red bricks by the Templars as...

    SAINT STANISLAUSBishop of Cracow, Martyr(1030-1079) Saint Stanislaus was born in answer to prayer, when his parents were advanced in age. Out of gratitude they educated him for the Church. When his parents died, he sold their vast properties and gave the price to the poor. He was ordained, and being a holy priest, soon afterwards became a Canon of the Cracow cathedral. It was necessary to have recourse to the Pope to have him accept the see of Cracow when it became vacant. But the bishop of Cracow’s virtues increased with his dignity and obligations; Saint Stanislaus donned a...

             Bishop and  Martyr St. Stanislaus of Cracow   (1030-1070)          Poland has given us two saints named Stanislaus. Of these, the better known is the young Jesuit saint, Stanislaus Kostka (1550-1586). But in Poland itself Bishop St. Stanislaus is a national hero. He headed the diocese of Cracow, a predecessor of Pope John Paul II.        The family name of Cracow's Stanislaus was Szczepanowski. His parents were devout members of the nobility. They had been childless, but God finally rewarded their prayers for a family by sending them Stanislaus. From his birth...

  • To Homosexual Activists: Krakow says NO!

    Krakow Says No! by John Horvat II The city of Krakow would seem to be an unlikely place for a heated debate over homosexual “rights” and same-sex “marriage.” Poland’s cultural capital is situated in a conservative region in this overwhelmingly Catholic country. The city’s homosexual population is minute and insignificant. Indeed the issue has been largely ignored by Polish media. Resistance to the idea of same-sex “marriage” is strong and there is a tendency to be complacent in the belief that such an aberration would never enter the country. This climate, however, has recently changed. With Poland’s May 1 entry...
