Excerpt from the interview given by priest canon Wojciech Raczkowski for the “Catholic Guide”:
“After fifty-two years of priesthood, how not to thank the Lord for letting me persevere in His service? How can I not apologize for having swallowed so much? How not to ask me to endure my days? Another accent of this reflection: what fruits did this service to God and people bring? We are useless servants, but what we were supposed to do – somehow we did. I think that one point of this question is contained in one of the mass prayers: “Please, Lord, let us constantly consider your teaching by word and deed, what you like” – he said in an interview quoted here for the “Catholic Guide”.
