Good Shepherd Sunday is the perfect time to pray for our priests, bishops, the pope, and all those who shepherd the Lord’s flock. In St. Stanislaus Church, there are two beautiful images of the Good Shepherd. One is portrayed in the exquisite stained-glass windows in the church. The other, as shown, is found elsewhere in the church. Father Michal invites you to find this depiction and email him (firstname.lastname@example.org) or send him a note (The Good Shepherd, St. Stanislaus Church, 123 Townsend Street, Buffalo, NY 14212) prior to Sunday, April 15, indicating its location. A “prize” will be awarded to the first five correct entries received.see more »

The Ancient chants retracing the Passion and Crucifixion of Christ form the essence of this typically Polish weekly Lenten service that takes its name from the words of the hymn, "Gorzkie zale przybywajcia" (Come to us, bitter lamentations). Many Poles know the texts of the entire three-part cycle by heart.
The Gorzkie Zale [gosh-geh-zahl-leh] began in Warsaw's Holy Cross Church during the 1700s. The devotion incorporates prose and verse, chant and reading, prayer and meditation, inviting participants to reflect on the mystery of Christian redemption, the Passion and death of the Christ. This deep appreciation for the Passion is seen in the most popular Polish image of Christ, Chrystus Frasobliwy, the so-called "sorrowing Christ," which depicts Christ in the Garden, bent in prayer and sorrow. The Lamentations highlight the very emotional nature of Polish spirituality, inviting a personal identification with the Suffering Lord and His Mother. The devotion is most often preceded by Benediction and chanted kneeling before the Blessed Sacrament.
