From 29th November to 1st December, Fr. James and team preached a charismatic convention for more than 2200 people at Hlohovec- "Sportova Hala na Zabrani" in Slovakia. Fr. James was invited by Arch Bishop Mons, Jan Orosch.  There were many people from Czech Republic too to attend the program.The theme of the event was " Jesus Christ the healer  and saviour of the world " ( Is 53:4) Fr. James and Dr. Richie gave very powerful and enlightening talks to bring the people to deep inner healing and conversion to an authentic Catholic Christian life.All those who attended the retreat said that the talks and prayers helped them to deepen their faith in Jesus and His body, the church; and to grow in the Holy Spirit more and more. The inner healing prayer on the second day gave them all a real experience of new birth in the Spirit. Fr. James, in spite of his physical sufferings, placed his hands on each participant and volunteers and their children- almost 2500 people- and prayed for the infilling of the Holy Spirit on Sunday morning.  On all days Dr. Richie and Gaby were praying over people who came to them for any spiritual help. There were many beautiful testimonies of reconciliation, healing and life-change. There was no time  for people to come forward to share testimonies in public. Fr. James celebrated mass in Slovak on two days. On the last day, on the first Sunday of the advent, Fr Josef Schwarz, the dean who represented the arch bishop, led the concelebrated  mass, and he thanked Fr. James and team for coming to preach the Gospel to such a large crowd to lead them to  the kingdom of God. He himself was in the program on all three days. After the Holy Communion, both  Slovakia and Czech Republic were consecrated to  the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. After the consecration the people were thrilled to chant the national anthem with great joy. Fr. Samuel Hurajt, a Minorist priest was a great help for all the liturgical events and programs. There were enough priests to hear confessions and to concelebrate mass.
The convention was organised by Radek & Zuzana Lapcic with the help of " Credo" an evangelising team they had formed.

Bóg uzdrawia. Niezwykłe rekolekcje z Ojcem Jamesem Manjackalem

28 listopada 2019 | 19:08 | amir | Warszawa

Ok. 1400 osób wzięło udział w rekolekcjach pod hasłem „On leczy złamanych na duchu i przewiązuje ich rany” (ps 147,3), które głosił znany katolicki charyzmatyk, o. James Manjackal. Rekolekcje organizowane przez Fundację Bądź Dobrej Myśli odbywały się od 22 do 24 listopada w warszawskiej Falenicy.

Na program rekolekcji składały się: konferencje wygłaszane przez O. Jamesa, modlitwy ( różaniec, koronka do Bożego Miłosierdzia) a także modlitwy o uzdrowienia duchowe i fizyczne oraz Msze święte w pięknej oprawie muzycznej. Trzydniowym spotkaniom towarzyszyła atmosfera radości, wzruszeń i żywej wiary.

Uczestnikami, jak mówią organizatorzy, byli zarówno ludzie mocniej zaangażowani w życie Kościoła – członkowie różnego rodzaju katolickich wspólnot, ruchów i stowarzyszeń, grup modlitewnych, całe rodziny jak również tradycyjnie praktykujący katolicy, ale także osoby poszukujące, wątpiące czy sceptycznie nastawione do Kościoła. Ludzie modlili się o uzdrowienie z choroby, rzucenie nałogów, uzdrowienie wewnętrzne – z lęków, depresji, zniewoleń duchowych, o nawrócenie dzieci albo współmałżonka.

Na Eucharystii niedzielnej w uroczystość Chrystusa Króla o. James podkreślił, że Królem życia każdego katolika powinien stać się Jezus Chrystus, a Królestwo Boże jak podkreśla Ewangelia nie jest z tego świata. To nie królestwo pieniędzy, władzy, ambicji, sukcesów zawodowych. To królestwo wewnętrznej radości, pokoju, miłości i jest ono możliwe, gdy przyjmujemy do siebie Ducha Świętego, który objawia nam prawdę o Bożej Miłości, Chrystusie i Bogu Ojcu. Duch Święty łączy się z naszą wolą, sercem i intelektem i przynosi nam swoje siedmiorakie dary.

O. James zachęcał do przebaczenia i podkreślał jego znaczenie w procesie uzdrowienia ciała, duszy, serca.

Podał sposób na pełnię szczęścia . To 5 punktów: codzienna osobista modlitwa i kontakt z Bogiem, codzienna lektura Pisma Świętego, udział w Eucharystii ( zachęcał do codziennego udziału), post oraz zaangażowanie we wspólnotę. Ważne jest także dzielenie się i pomoc innym.

Rekolekcje z o. Jamesem Manjackalem odbywały się w Hali Sportowej przy ul. Poezji 5, w Warszawskiej Falenicy. Organizatorzy dziękowali wszystkim, dzięki którym mogło odbyć się to niezwykłe spotkanie, władzom Diecezji Warszawsko-Praskiej, księżom zaangażowanym w posługę podczas rekolekcji, obsłudze technicznej, muzycznej, cateringowej oraz ponad 60 wolontariuszom, bez których trudno byłoby podołać wyzwaniom logistycznym i organizacyjnym tak dużego masowego spotkania.

Rekolekcje tego typu przyciągają tłumy pragnące doświadczyć spotkania z Bogiem, pogłębienia swojej wiary, uporządkowania własnego życia, a także doznania uzdrawiającej mocy Boga Miłosiernego. Ludziom wątpiącym, poszukującym czy sceptycznie nastawionym do Kościoła wybierającym takie spotkania towarzyszy często zwykła ciekawość i chęć sprawdzenia, czy Bóg jest i działa. Ojciec James głosił rekolekcje w Polsce już kilkadziesiąt razy. Na zaproszenie Fundacji Bądź Dobrej Myśli przyjechał po raz jedenasty.

Tegoroczne rekolekcje organizowane były przez Fundację Bądź Dobrej Myśli przy współudziale parafii Matki Bożej Dobrej Rady z Warszawy – Miedzeszyna.

O. James Manjackal ( ur. 18 kwietnia 1946 r w Cheruvally w Kerala ) pochodzi z Indii. Jest członkiem Zgromadzenia Misjonarzy Świętego Franciszka Salezego [MSFS]. W czasie pracy jako wykładowca w seminarium spotkał Jezusa dzięki modlitwie młodego człowieka. Został uleczony fizycznie i duchowo i od tego momentu zapragnął głosić rekolekcje charyzmatyczne na całym świecie. Zrezygnował jak sam twierdzi z ustatkowanego, spokojnego i wygodnego życia wykładowcy, by stać się wędrownym głosicielem Ewangelii.

Podczas swej posługi ten urodzony w Indiach misjonarz, odwiedził ponad 100 krajów. W 1976 roku został wysłany przez Zgromadzenie z misją ewangelizacji świata. Podczas tych niezwykłych spotkań mają miejsce liczne uzdrowienia zarówno fizyczne, jak i duchowe. Ojciec James podkreśla, że nie on jest uzdrowicielem ale Jezus Chrystus.

W lutym 2016 r. podczas uroczystości w Watykanie o. James został posłany przez Papieża Franciszka jako Misjonarz Miłosierdzia, by w imieniu następcy św. Piotra głosić Boże Miłosierdzie i o nim świadczyć.

Działalność ewangelizacyjna o. Jamesa Manjackala jest bardzo szeroka. Oprócz głoszenia rekolekcji o. James stworzył i wspiera liczne ośrodki duszpasterskie, budowy kościołów, domów dla bezdomnych i chorych, na co przeznacza środki zebrane podczas głoszenia rekolekcji. W Indiach powstało centrum rekolekcyjne Charis Bhavan, założone i ufundowane przez o. Jamesa w 1989 r. w Kerala (południowe Indie). Jest to miejsce, w którym tysiące ludzi modli się i gdzie co tydzień prowadzone są rekolekcje, a współbracia o. Jamesa – misjonarze św. Franciszka Salezego, przybliżają ludzi do Chrystusa. W miejscu tym schronienie znajdują także osoby samotne i w podeszłym wieku. Kolejne miejsce, to Charis Maids Seva Sadan (Service centre of Charis Maids) – współtworzony przez o. Jamesa dom dla kobiet samotnych i w podeszłym wieku. Misjonarze św. Franciszka Salezego pracujący w Kerala prowadzą także niższe seminarium duchowne, w którym rozpoczyna się formacja przyszłych misjonarzy. Duży wkład w rozwój i funkcjonowanie seminarium mają dotacje przeznaczane przez o. Jamesa, który wspiera dzieła ewangelizacyjne nie tylko w Indiach, lecz także np. w Afryce, gdzie wspiera budowy domów dla ludzi ubogich i bezdomnych, budowy kościołów, a także edukację dzieci z rodzin ubogich.

Jest autorem licznych książek i publikacji m.in.: „Eureka”, „Widziałem wieczność”, „Modlitwa czyni cuda”, „Uzdrowienie wewnętrzne”, „Raj

God heals. An unusual retreat with Father James Manjackal

November 28, 2019 | 19:08 | amir Warsaw
Photo: Maciej Furmanek

Approx. 1,400 people took part in the retreat under the slogan "He heals the spirited and binds their wounds" (ps 147.3), which was proclaimed by the well-known Catholic charismatic, Father James Manjackal. The retreat organized by the Foundation Be Good Thought took place from November 22 to 24 in Falenica, Warsaw.

The retreat program consisted of conferences given by Father James, prayers (rosary, chaplet of Divine Mercy) as well as prayers for spiritual and physical healing and Holy Masses in a beautiful musical setting. The three-day meetings were accompanied by an atmosphere of joy, emotions and vivid faith.

The participants, as the organizers say, were both people more strongly involved in the life of the Church - members of various types of Catholic communities, movements and associations, prayer groups, entire families as well as traditionally practicing Catholics, but also people seeking, doubting or skeptical about the Church. People were praying for healing from illness, quitting addictions, internal healing - from fears, depression, spiritual enslavement, for the conversion of children or a spouse.

At the Sunday Eucharist on the feast of Christ the King, Father James emphasized that Jesus Christ should become the King of every Catholic's life, and the Kingdom of God, as the Gospel emphasizes, is not of this world. This is not a kingdom of money, power, ambition and professional success. It is a kingdom of inner joy, peace, love and it is possible when we receive the Holy Spirit who reveals to us the truth about God's Love, Christ and God the Father. The Holy Spirit joins our will, heart and intellect and brings us His the seven gifts.

Father James encouraged forgiveness and emphasized his importance in the process of healing the body, soul and heart.

He gave a way to full happiness. These are 5 points: daily personal prayer and contact with God, daily reading of the Holy Bible, participation in the Eucharist (encouraged daily participation), fasting and commitment to the community. It is also important to share and help others.

The retreat with Father James Manjackal took place in the Sports Hall at ul. Poezji 5, in Warsaw Falenica. The organizers thanked everyone who could make this extraordinary meeting happen to the authorities of the Warsaw-Prague Diocese, priests involved in service during retreats, technical, music and catering services, and over 60 volunteers, without whom it would be difficult to cope with the logistical and organizational challenges of such a large mass meeting .

This type of retreat attracts crowds wishing to experience a meeting with God, deepening their faith, ordering their own lives, as well as experiencing the healing power of Merciful God. People who doubt, seek or be skeptical about the Church and choose such meetings are often accompanied by mere curiosity and the desire to see if God is and works. Father James gave a retreat several dozen times in Poland. He came for the eleventh time at the invitation of the Foundation Be Good Thought.

This year's retreat was organized by the Foundation Be Good Thought in cooperation with the parish of Our Lady of Good Council from Warsaw - Miedzeszyn.

Father James Manjackal (born April 18, 1946 in Cheruvally, Kerala) comes from India. He is a member of the Congregation of Missionaries of St. Francis of Sales [MSFS]. During his work as a lecturer at the seminary, he met Jesus through the prayer of a young man. He was healed physically and spiritually and from that moment he wanted to preach a charismatic retreat around the world. He resigned, as he claims, from a settled, calm and comfortable life of a lecturer, to become a traveling preacher of the Gospel.

During his ministry, this Indian-born missionary visited over 100 countries. In 1976 he was sent by the Congregation with the mission of evangelizing the world. During these extraordinary meetings, numerous physical and spiritual healings take place. Father James emphasizes that he is not a healer but Jesus Christ.

In February 2016, during a ceremony in the Vatican, Father James was sent by Pope Francis as a Missionary of Mercy to on behalf of the successor of Saint. Peter to proclaim and show God's mercy.

Father James Manjackal's evangelizing activity is very wide. In addition to preaching a retreat, Father James has created and supported numerous pastoral centers, construction of churches, homes for the homeless and the sick, for which he dedicates the funds raised during preaching. A retreat center Charis Bhavan was founded in India, founded and funded by Father James in 1989 in Kerala (South India). It is a place where thousands of people pray and where weekly retreats are held, and the confreres of Father James - missionaries of St. Francis de Sales, bring people closer to Christ. Lonely and elderly people find shelter here. The next place is Charis Maids Seva Sadan (Service center of Charis Maids) - a home for lonely and elderly women co-created by Father James. Missionaries Francis de Sales working in Kerala also conduct a lower seminary where the formation of future missionaries begins. Grants allocated by Father James, who supports evangelistic works not only in India but also in Africa, where he supports the construction of houses for the poor and the homeless, the construction of churches, as well as the education of children from families make a great contribution to the development and functioning of the seminar. the poor.

He is the author of numerous books and publications, among others: "Eureka", "I saw eternity", "Prayer does Wonders", "New life in Christ", "Paradise restored"

Misjonarz miłosierdzia. Kim jest ojciec James Manjackal?
Iwona Flisikowska

W ciągu 40 lat głoszenia Ewangelii ojciec James był prześladowany, a także porwany i torturowany. Swoim oprawcom, znanym z imienia i nazwiska, wybaczył, a nawet pomógł w najtrudniejszych dla nich sytuacjach rodzinnych.

Kiedy na rozpoczęcie Roku Miłosierdzia w 2016 roku papież Franciszek zaprosił duchownych z różnych stron świata, aby mianować ich misjonarzami miłosierdzia, wśród zaproszonych osób – jako jedyny na wózku inwalidzkim – był ojciec James Manjackal, który mówi, że ani wózek, ani żadna niesprawność nie są przeszkodą, by głosić Dobrą Nowinę po krańce Ziemi.

Uzdrowiony
Ojciec James Manjackal urodził się w 1946 roku w południowych Indiach, w stanie Kreala zamieszkałym przez wieli katolików. Święcenia kapłańskie przyjął w roku 1973 w Kongregacji Misjonarzy św. Franciszka Salezego. Przez wiele lat wykładał jako profesor w seminarium, w Ettummanoor.

Podczas ciężkiej choroby, gruźlicy nerek, został uleczony fizycznie i duchowo – jak twierdzi, stało się to w czasie modlitwy młodego człowieka z grupy charyzmatycznej, który modlił się nad nim w szpitalu. To był przełom w dotychczasowym życiu kapłańskim zakonnika.

Od tego momentu powziął decyzję, że będzie głosił rekolekcje ewangelizacyjne, szczególnie z modlitwą o uzdrowienie duszy i ciała – jak się okazało z biegiem czasu, na całym świecie.

Prześladowania i przebaczenie

W ciągu 40 lat głoszenia Ewangelii ojciec James był prześladowany, a także porwany i torturowany. Swoim oprawcom, znanym z imienia i nazwiska, wybaczył, a nawet pomógł w najtrudniejszych dla nich sytuacjach rodzinnych.

W Arabii Saudyjskiej został aresztowany i uwięziony już na lotnisku za to, że miał przy sobie różańce. Z więzienia pomógł mu się wydostać amerykański oficer, który wstawił się za ojcem, zeznając, że różańce są dla jego amerykańskich żołnierzy stacjonujących w tym regionie.

Jednakże pośród wszystkich tortur, jakie doznał misjonarz, największym ciosem były dla niego niesłuszne podejrzenia i oczernienia. Przyjął je z pokorą i przebaczeniem.

W 2012 roku, kiedy powracał z rekolekcji głoszonych na Półwyspie Arabskim m.in. dla muzułmanów, ojciec James poczuł się źle na lotnisku – po wypiciu kawy, którą otrzymał, a później jeszcze gorzej w samolocie. Dotarł do domu, ale jego stan był bardzo ciężki.

Wówczas wiele setek tysięcy osób na całym świecie otoczyło ciężko chorego misjonarza modlitwą. „Póki ręce wznosimy do góry, niczym Mojżesz na polu bitwy, mamy nadzieję na zwycięstwo” – komentowali między sobą modlący się o uratowanie księdza.

W wyniku ciężkiej i bardzo trudnej do zdiagnozowania rzadkiej choroby (zespół Guillaina i Barrégo) misjonarz był sparaliżowany i podłączony do respiratora, był w śpiączce. Dzisiaj stan zdrowia ojca jest dobry, choć porusza się na wózku inwalidzkim. O. James zawsze na rekolekcjach dziękuje i mówi, że stan jego zdrowia poprawia się dzięki modlitwie tysięcy ludzi i licznym rehabilitacjom.

Kiedy na rozpoczęcie Roku Miłosierdzia w 2016 roku papież Franciszek zaprosił duchownych z różnych stron świata, aby mianować ich misjonarzami miłosierdzia, wśród zaproszonych osób – jako jedyny na wózku inwalidzkim – był ojciec James Manjackal, który mówi, że ani wózek, ani żadna niesprawność nie są przeszkodą, by głosić Dobrą Nowinę po krańce Ziemi. 

To nie ja uzdrawiam, tylko Jezus
Przyjdźcie do mnie wszyscy utrudzeni i obciążeni, a ja was uzdrowię! – te słowa Jezusa często przypomina ojciec James w swojej kapłańskiej posłudze, również w czasie rekolekcji.

Misjonarz głosił rekolekcje ewangelizacyjne, również z modlitwą o uzdrowienie duszy i ciała:  już w ponad 100 krajach, na wszystkich kontynentach. Prowadził też kongresy i szkoły ewangelizacyjne. Przeprowadzał misje pośród muzułmanów i osób, które chciały zostać chrześcijanami.

Znane są świadectwa uzdrowień, zwłaszcza otrzymanych w czasie mszy świętych sprawowanych przez ojca Jamesa. To nie ja uzdrawiam, tylko Jezus – tłumaczy misjonarz.

Tak było i w tym przypadku: Gaby Landauro Ledesma twierdzi, że 20 lat temu po modlitwie ojca Jamesa została uzdrowiona z bardzo zaawansowanego stwardnienia rozsianego. Do dzisiaj Gaby, jej syn lekarz Ricardo Febres Landauro i cała rodzina wspierają misjonarza w jego ewangelizacyjnym dziele.

Ojciec James Manjackal pomimo niesprawności przemierza wiele setek kilometrów, głosząc rekolekcje, sprawując msze święte, które gromadzą wiernych z różnych stron świata. Pomimo bólu ramion i dłoni błogosławi wszystkich, a zwłaszcza dzieci i młodzież, „ponieważ jest to przyszłość świata, nasze bezcenne perły” – mówi misjonarz miłosierdzia.

Missionary of Mercy. Who is Father James Manjackal?
Iwona Flisikowska

During the 40 years of preaching the Gospel, Father James was persecuted, kidnapped and tortured. He forgave his tormentors, known by name and even helped in the most difficult family situations for them.

When at the beginning of the Year of Mercy in 2016, Pope Francis invited clergy from around the world to appoint them as missionaries of mercy, among the invited persons - as the only one in a wheelchair - was father James Manjackal, who says that neither the wheelchair nor any disability are an obstacle to preaching the Good News to the ends of the earth.

Healed

Father James Manjackal was born in 1946 in southern India, in the state of Kreala inhabited by many Catholics. He was ordained a priest in 1973 in the Congregation of Missionaries of Saint. Francis of Sales. For many years he lectured as a professor at the seminar at Ettummanoor.

During a serious illness, tuberculosis, he was healed physically and spiritually - he claims it happened during the prayer of a young man from a charismatic group who was praying over him in the hospital. It was a breakthrough in the priest's past life.

From that moment on, he decided to preach evangelization retreats, especially with a prayer to heal the soul and body - as it turned out over the world.
 
Persecution and forgiveness

During the 40 years of preaching the Gospel, Father James was persecuted, kidnapped and tortured. He forgave his tormentors, known by name and even helped in the most difficult family situations for them.

In Saudi Arabia, he was arrested and imprisoned at the airport for carrying rosaries. He was helped out of jail by an American officer who stood up for his father, testifying that the rosaries were for his American soldiers stationed in the region.

However, amid all the torture that the missionary suffered, his unjust suspicion and slander were the biggest blow to him. He accepted them with humility and forgiveness.

In 2012, when he returned from a retreat preached on the Arabian Peninsula, among others for Muslims, Father James felt bad at the airport - after drinking the coffee he received, and later worse on the plane. He arrived home, but his condition was very bad.

At that time, many hundreds of thousands of people around the world surrounded the seriously ill missionary with prayer. "As long as we raise our hands, like Moses on the battlefield, we hope for victory," commented among themselves praying for saving the priest.

As a result of a severe and very difficult to diagnose rare disease (Guillain-Barré syndrome), the missionary was paralyzed and connected to a respirator, he was in a coma. Today, my father's health is good, although he is in a wheelchair. Father James always thanks and says that his health is improving thanks to the prayers of thousands of people and numerous rehabilitation.

When at the beginning of the Year of Mercy in 2016, Pope Francis invited clergy from around the world to appoint them as missionaries of mercy, among the invited persons - as the only one in a wheelchair - was father James Manjackal, who says that neither the wheelchair nor any disability are an obstacle to preaching the Good News to the ends of the earth.

I don't heal, it's Jesus

Come to me, all weary and burdened, and I will heal you! - these words of Jesus are often reminded by Father James in his priestly ministry, also during retreats.

The missionary preached an evangelistic retreat, also with a prayer for healing the soul and body: in over 100 countries, on all continents. He also ran congresses and evangelistic schools. He carried out missions among Muslims and people who wanted to become Christians.

Testimonies of healings are known, especially those received during masses celebrated by Father James. I'm not healing, it's Jesus, ”explains the missionary.

This was the case here: Gaby Landauro Ledesma claims that 20 years ago, after the prayer of Father James, she was healed of very advanced multiple sclerosis. To this day, Gaby, her son, doctor Ricardo Febres Landauro and the whole family support the missionary in his evangelizing work.

Despite disability, Father James Manjackal travels many hundreds of kilometers, preaching retreats, celebrating masses that gather faithful from around the world. Despite the pain of arms and hands, he blesses everyone, especially children and young people, "because it is the future of the world, our precious pearls," says the missionary of mercy.

As majority of the participants had attended his  retreat at least once previously, Fr. James and Dr. Richie gave very enlightening, clear, radical,  and deep talks on holiness of life that is in union with Christ. The talks helped each one in the retreat to look deep into their interiority or heart so that they could cling to the Hart of Jesus after a good conversion.  The title of the retreat was " Cast your net into deep" ( Lk 5:4).  The long and deep prayers of healing and the laying on of hands on each person for the infilling of the holy Spirit made the participants very happy and spirit filled. All the priests said that the confessions were very deep and many came to the confessionals in tears with real repentance or 'metanoia'  of their past. On Saturday afternoon the local bishop Rt. Rev. Dr.  Mgr. Tadeusz Litynski came and listened to the talks of Fr. James on the kingdom of God and gave a short talk to appreciate the works of evangelisation by Fr. James in Poland particularly in his diocese. He blessed the participants.  On Sunday morning, many came forward to give testimonies of healing, liberation and experience of new life. There were testimonies of healing of cancer, tumor, complicated arthritis and rheumatic problems etc.  Dr. Richie then gave a talk on five multivitamin tablets for spiritual growth. The concluding Mass was officiated by the parish priest at 12 midday. Fr. James gave the homily in which he asked them to be ' firebrands' of Christ with the power, fire and enthusiasm of the Holy Spirit.  As usual he blessed the religious articles after the holy Communion. All the talks and prayers were translated by Thomas Ksiazczak from Torun. A team of Wiola, Kazimier & Asia came all the way from Gdansk and  helped Fr. James, Gaby and the organisation. Here are some videos and photos.

Glogow-Poland. August 2nd - 4th 2019
Fr. James and team conducted "a family retreat"  at PARAFIA  pod wezwaniem Milosierdzia Bozego w Glogowie from 3rd to 5th August. The theme was, " Believe in the Lord Jesus, you and your family will be saved" ( Act 16:31) Although the retreat was intended for over 1400 people in a hall, the venue was changed as only few people registered for the retreat. In Poland the spirit of "anti-clergy" is at work through the enemies of the church, as a result many people are keeping themselves away from church and programs of the church! Fr. James gave powerful talks on the need of strengthening the spirit of catholic families through prayers and sacramental life. He said very clearly that individuals or families can not live in grace without priests and bishops; he pleaded with the people not to keep themselves away from the church because of the scandals of a few priests.  He asked pardon for the sins of the priests! All those who came to the retreat had a very good experience of the Holy Spirit and the renewal of Christian Catholic life. There were many good testimonies. Many testified that their love for the clergy and the church increased by the talks and prayers of Fr. James. It is Ksiadz kanonic podporucznik Janusz Idzik who invited Fr. James with the permission of the bishop and convened the program. He was so happy with the retreat, he even danced with the people on the last day of the retreat! He wants father James to go there again for renewal retreats. Teresa and Franciszek Gruszka were the organisers of the retreat with Fr. Janusz. Jadwiga came with a team of people from Krosno to help the organisers. Wiola and the team from Gdansk was there to Help Gaby and Fr. James.
