A blog about the life & times of Jorge Bergoglio (aka Francis)
There's animal everywhere, Poland has just retained more a sense of the faith than otger former Catholic nations. Part that bothers me about Poland is the cult of JP2....
Not true. This is the centuries-old tradition of the Kashubians. It was supposed to be a dance of a painting in the sea. Tradition from the XVII/XVIII century
Thank you and never stop teaching us.
This video is being posted all over the internet to show that Polish are not really Catholic, and that this dance is sacrilege. If there is some Kashubian Catholic explanation, can you please provide some insight and documentation or links?
First time my wife and I see this and we were born there. Must be a local tradition of some sort. Looks like is something that is not just willie nillie and has some meaning. Will research and update once I get more info.
Google "bowing of the feretrons." No authoritative sources are listed, but a couple people say this is a legit tradition.
