Hello,
Father Bakalarczyk is not FSSP, he is dioecesian priest from the Archdiocese of Wrocław. I would like you to rectify it.

As a catholic it is our duty to pray for our priest, as they are the chosen one to spread the words of God. I am praying for the speed recovery of Fr. Ireneusz and all the priest in the whole �� and specially to our own H.E. Pope Francis. May the hand of the Holy Ghost shield them and protect them from enemies , in sicknesses and delivered not from evil.. Amen.

So little information is available about the assailant, could it be that he was a brand-new arrival to Poland?

Fr. Bakalarczyk wasn't ever a FSSP priest.

Absolutely not an immigrant.

He's a Poke by birth, who was "upset" by the recently published documentary on the extent of pedophilia in the Church.
