Fr. Tadeusz Dajczer Memorial

Father Tadeusz Dajczer was born on August 10, 1931 in Pruszkow, near Warsaw. He was ordained to the Priesthood in 1955 in Warsaw, Poland. Father Tadeusz Dajczer died on the evening of September 8th, 2009, the feast of the Birthday of Our Blessed Mother, Mary.

After his ordination, he studied at The Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome where he obtained his D.D. Upon his return to Poland he established the Phenomenology of Religion Department at the Academy of Catholic Theology in Warsaw. In 1994, Mr. Lech Walesa, who at that time was the President of Poland, awarded him the title of Professor of Theological Sciences, the highest academic title given to outstanding university teachers and scientists.

A decisive moment took place in the life of Fr. Dajczer during his confession with St. Padre Pio that was the beginning of a search for sanctity for both himself and others. In contemporary culture when Christian and family life are threatened on many fronts, the author Father Dajczer wrote articles and books that emphasized to readers the most important thing is for spiritual life to thrive in contact with God Himself.

His book, The Gift of Faith, has attained one hundred-three editions all over the world since 1992. This book has been translated into twenty-eight languages and is issued in thirty five countries. Recently, Fr. Dajczer completed a series of six books dedicated to the Eucharist.

It has been a privilege and a pleasure for the In the Arms of Mary Foundation Board of Directors to represent this author as publisher of The Gift of Faith. May Fr. Dajczer rest in peace.

Touching Souls World-wide

Several foundation members attended the 49th International Eucharistic Congress in Quebec, Canada. The experience was so awesome. We gathered with over 15,000 Catholics. At least 3,000 of the attendees were cardinals, bishops, priests, and religious representing the four corners of the earth. Despite hardships and cost, the faithful came with joy to adore our Blessed Lord and sing thanks for the Eucharist, gift of God for the life of the world.

In the spirit of our Clergy and Religious Project, we brought several copies of Open Wide the Door to Christ to give to the clergy. We enjoyed meeting priests from around the world. One particular incident took us by surprise. While riding the bus, we were visiting with a French priest. He accepted our gift and slowly looked through the pages. Suddenly, his face lit up. He recognized the author's name, S.C. Biela. Evidently, Father already had a copy of our book Behold, I Stand at the Door and Knock. He really identified with the imagery of the "white-washed tomb." He told us the book made a big impact on his spiritual life as a priest. We were humbled by his sincerity and gratefulness. What a special grace from Our Blessed Mother who allowed us to witness how our publications are touching souls world-wide.

Blessed Virgin Mary Teaches Us to Pray with Simplicity and Fervor.

This year we are celebrating the 150th anniversary of the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Lourdes. The importance of this anniversary has been highlighted by Pope Benedict XVI during his last apostolic visit to France (September 12-15, 2008).

This year is also very rich in many events here in the US. The political scene may confuse many. The economic situation brings a lot of disturbance, the unemployment rate causes anxiety, the re-definition of marriage may cause nothing else but further perplexity, and our daily problems just add to our frustration.

In spite of all these events, Pope Benedict XVI encourages us to a deeper entrustment to Blessed Virgin Mary for as he says, "Mary is the star of hope for all of us." (Spe Salvi, 50)

Taking up the cross daily and following Jesus Christ has never been easy. Prayer life in spite of all these surrounding events is not easy either. How many times do we struggle to know if we pray correctly? How many times have we wondered if God listens to our petitions? Still, some people question what to pray for during these challenging times.

The statement of Pope Benedict answers some of those questions: "Mary teaches us to pray, to make of our prayer an act of love for God and an act of fraternal charity. By praying with Mary, our heart welcomes those who suffer. How can our life not be transformed by this? Mary comes to us as a mother, always open to the needs of her children. Through the light which streams from her face, God's mercy is made manifest. Let us allow ourselves to be touched by her gaze, which tells us that we are all loved by God and never abandoned by him! Mary comes to remind us that prayer which is humble and intense, trusting and persevering must have a central place in our Christian lives." (Pope's homily during "Torchlight Procession.")

Mary's message is a message of hope for us all, hope of which we are in such a great need! Mary's message of hope and love is a message which uplifts us and gives us peace, courage and strength. Many people have already discovered the peace which comes from Our Lady. For example, the Pope says that: "You see it here in Lourdes, as in all Marian shrines; immense crowds come thronging to Mary's feet to entrust to her their most intimate thoughts, their most heartfelt wishes. That which many, either because of embarrassment or modesty, do not confide to their nearest and dearest, they confide to her who is all pure, to her Immaculate Heart: with simplicity, without frills, in truth. Before Mary, by virtue of her very purity, man does not hesitate to reveal his weakness, to express his questions and his doubts, to formulate his most secret hopes and desires. The Virgin Mary's maternal love disarms all pride; it renders man capable of seeing himself as he is, and it inspires in him the desire to be converted so as to give glory to God." (Pope's homily during the "Angelus.")

To Our Heavenly Mother we can reveal all our deepest secrets and desires. To her we can whisper all our problems and fears. After all, who else would be able to understand us better than Our Heavenly Mother? She, who is closer to us than anyone else, even closer than our earthly mother, truly understands us.

In addition, Mary's maternal love disarms all pride and as a result gives us happiness. Because when pride is minimized, then we can approach God with simplicity of heart and stand in truth. The Blessed Virgin teaches us how to discover God and His will amidst all of the world events, where the securities and values we have placed our faith in are simply shaken up. Precisely because of that, now more than ever, we have a greater need for entrustment to Our Lady.

Finally, let us not forget that our individual limitations bring us closer to her motherly arms and because of that closeness to her we will discover "that the Christian faith is not a burden: it is like a wing which enables us to fly higher, so as to take refuge in God's embrace."

Do I Trust in GOD's Mercy?

"Throw this useless servant into the darkness outside, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth" (Mt 25:30). Why did the master say these harsh words about his servant who did not multiply his one and only talent? He did not lose this one talent, so why was he condemned? At first glance, it seems that he was condemned because he did not multiply his talent. But does this interpretation explain everything? We should look at this parable with a wider lens, which is the lens of the entire Gospel.

For instance, the prodigal son wasted all of his inheritance, but his Father welcomed him home with joy, saying, "Quickly bring the finest robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Then let us celebrate with a feast, because this son of mine was dead, and has come to life again; he was lost, and has been found" (Lk 15:22-24). The good thief on the cross admitted that he had wasted everything and deserved condemnation, but he said to Jesus: "Remember me when you come into your kingdom." He did not hear these harsh words: "Throw this useless servant into the darkness, where he will be wailing and grinding his teeth". Instead, Jesus replied: "Amen, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise" (Lk 23:39-43).

Both examples show us that, in the parable about the talents, there is more than meets the eye. Why was the servant with one talent condemned by his master? We can find the deeper interpretation in the servant's own words, "Master, I knew you were a demanding person, harvesting where you did not plant and gathering where you did not scatter; so out of fear I went off and buried your talent in the ground" (Mt 25:24- 25). If the prodigal son had had this negative image of his Father, would he have ever returned home? Or if the good thief had seen Jesus in that same light, would he have called out to Him? The servant was condemned not only because he did not multiply his talent but primarily because he did not believe that his master would show him mercy.

There is a parallel in Luke's Gospel which confirms the wrong attitude of this servant. The master said to him: "With your own words I shall condemn you, you wicked servant" (Lk 19:21-23). The servant's words show us that he really feared his master. This fear made him bury his talent, instead of to risk standing before his master with empty hands if he had indeed lost everything. The same fear caused him to blame his master, not himself, for this situation, proof that the servant had no trust in the master's mercy - "GOD'S" mercy.

This is the drama for all people who do not believe in God's redeeming love and mercy, causing them to think they have to accomplish good deeds in order to receive Redemption. They are afraid to show God the truth about their failures and faults. They think they have to always hold success in their hands. They do not understand what St. Paul tells us: "ALL have sinned and are deprived of the glory of God. We are justified freely by his grace through the redemption in Christ Jesus" (Rom 3:24). We must consider that a person is justified by faith apart from works. Our good deeds are very important, but when we start to count on them too much, we are relying on ourselves, and this closes us off to God's Redemptive love and mercy. We have our own solutions and never have a need to cry out for God's mercy.

Do not worry when you see that you have no good deeds, when your hands are empty before God. This situation can cause your trust and faith in God to multiply, and then you will desire to await everything from Him, just as the prodigal son did. We can be condemned for lack of faith, not from lack of good deeds. Today's Gospel is Good News. It helps us to understand that we should not fear God and we should not be afraid of the truth about ourselves. The most important attitude is TRUST in God's mercy. We are justified by faith apart from works.

What then shall we say? That the Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, achieved it, the righteousness that comes from faith; but the Israelites, who pursued the law of righteousness, did not attain that law? Why not? It is because they did not act by faith, but instead by what they could do by works. They stumbled over the stone that causes stumbling, as it is written in Romans: "Behold, I am laying a stone in Zion that will make people stumble and a rock that will make them fall, and whoever believes in him shall not be put to shame" (Rom 9:30-10:1).

The books published by IAMF portray the true image of GOD and His Divine Mercy.

Letter from a Friend of the Foundation

Cure of Ars parish, Archdiocese of St. Louis, recently completed the Parish Reflection Series "Behold Your Mother." Based on participant feedback, the program was very well received. We are currently planning another Reflection Series for later this year and encourage more parishioners to participate.

These programs give us the opportunity to spend some time looking at ourselves and our relationship with God and to learn from each other that our journey of Faith calls us to do more.

These programs are applicable to how we live every day, how we interpret and use the challenges and blessings we encounter. We need to make time in our busy lives to discern God's desires for us and to trust in His guidance.

This program gives us the opportunity to consider how we respond to our God's calling and how Mary, our Mother and Advocate, is available to help us.

"Mercy and Our Illusions" by Rev. Bob O'Neill

In this time of mercy we need to throw ourselves at the feet of the Merciful One begging that we will trust Him alone--knowing that reliance on anything other than Him is following an Illusion that, in fact, keeps us from Him.

"The human tendency to build illusory reliance is amazing. As a people of weak faith, we cannot live without our illusions because we do not believe that God loves us with all of our misery, and we cannot stand the truth--neither about ourselves nor about the world that surrounds us" (S. C. Biela, GOD Alone Suffices p. 4).

In the Gospel on Divine Mercy Sunday, we see St. Thomas (Didymus) going out on his own--thus missing our Lord. When Thomas hears that the Lord is alive--and that the other Apostles saw him--he doubts. Instead of believing that the Lord is God and that He will remain with His own, as He promised, Thomas makes bold statements on what it would take for him to believe.

How often do we strike out on our own, following the illusion of our own resourcefulness, thinking that we can supplement what God is doing? We seek to understand and therefore conquer the world. How often do we turn away from God and ignore Him? Sometimes we seem to include Him--but even then, the plan is ours, not His.

Had St. Thomas truly believed, he would not have doubted. If we truly believed, we would always seek the will of the One who loves us. Then we would beg to follow His designs. In his book GOD Alone Suffices, Slawomir Biela systematically reveals our many false reliances and illusions, and shows us how we can depend on God to always lead us to happiness.

As with St. Thomas we can come to see Jesus as our Lord and God, and to give Him our total trust, knowing that He is always there for us. As did St. Thomas, we can come to know that He loves us, even in our sinfulness, and that His mercy is always there for us. With this knowledge, we'll find that the only actions we need to take are to trust in Him and to beg that we might love Him ever more and more.

When we find it difficult to trust our Lord or to allow our love for Him to increase, we can entrust ourselves to the loving arms of His mother and accept her as our own mother. To rest in Mary's arms is to rest in the arms of Christ. Our Lord in His loving mercy is there for us, desiring only that we spend all eternity with Him. When we go to Mary, she will help us to eliminate those illusionary reliances that block us from letting Him bathe us in His love and mercy.

--This spiritual commentary is from Fr. Bob O'Neill of the Diocese of Stockton. Fr. Bob has read and used Fr. Tadeusz Dajczer's and Mr. Biela's books in his ministry for the last seven years and we are grateful for his contribution to "Under Mary's Mantle."

Pure Spring Water for the Wounded Soul, by Theresa Bonopartis

Praise be to God we have just completed our yearly Renewal Retreat of our Entering Canaan post abortion mission with The Sisters of Life. For the second year, the retreat was based on the books of S. C. Biela, this year with a concentration on Behold, I Stand at the Door and Knock and Open Wide the Door to Christ.

Our yearly renewal retreat is just that, a renewal for the women who have been involved in the Entering Canaan mission over the years, from those just beginning their journey of healing from abortion, to those who have reached healing in Christ.

I have been questioned on the use of Biela's books in healing from a past abortion. There are those who feel that they may be too convicting and could instill more guilt and shame in those seeking forgiveness from God. I disagree.

Biela's books bring you on a journey towards the truth about yourself while also proclaiming the great love and mercy of God. Your nothingness becomes His everything.

Those who are suffering from a past abortion already know the severity of their sin! Most have been living in pain and denial for years, yearning for someone to acknowledge their pain and allow them to express the deep wound and the inability to forgive or get past themselves. Most have tried to ignore their feelings and come in desperation and desolation, feeling unforgivable and unlovable. Growing in the love of Christ, they gain the courage to look at their abortion decision, and the spiritual and psychological impact it has had on them. It is here they come to learn that they cannot heal on their own or ever make up for their abortions, but the truth is, they do not have to! Christ has already done that! As they acknowledge their pain, their “nothingness” in the sight of God and their inability to do anything without Him, they learn to live “In the Arms of Mary,” our mother, who leads us to her Son, there to offer themselves with empty hands to the Lord. It is only through Christ and the sacrifice of the Cross, that their abortions are healed. It is in their emptiness that they encounter Christ, and He in turn fills them with His life and His grace through Mary's arms.

That the truth finally be spoken in a loving way is a relief to those who have been unable to find a place to be themselves without fear of judgment or of being “found out.” Through the conferences, both by priests and other women who have made the healing journey, based on quotes from the books, they are led to the safe haven of the heart of Jesus and His forgiveness. This invitation is comforting for anyone who is truly seeking healing. It is a confirmation of what they already know in their hearts. As the secular world continues to deny their pain, we allow them to speak their truth, and as we are told, the truth will set you free!

It is in these empty hands brought to Jesus, that He will one day place their aborted children when they are joined in heaven.

--Theresa Bonopartis co-authored with The Sisters of Life, Entering Canaan, A Sacramental Journey into an Inheritance of Mercy, a post abortion ministry. She is currently the Director of Lumina, Hope & Healing after Abortion, a program of Good Counsel Homes.

Michael Dubruiel: "One of the Best Books on the Spiritual Life . . ."

I've ever read...

I have a M.A. in Christian Spirituality and have read a ton of books on the spiritual life, but I would have to say that The Gift of Faith by Father Tadeusz Dajczer is in a class all by itself.

I only came to know of this book a week ago, when I met the founders of In the Arms of Mary Foundation when I was attending the Catholic Marketing Network trade show in Birmingham, AL. Lisa Hendey has interviewed the organization for more about them.

Now, what I came to know about the organization is that they read The Gift of Faith by Father Tadeusz Dajczer and it changed their life. As a result they [published] his book and [began translating] those by a disciple of Father Dajczer's S.C. Biela (See God Alone Suffices as an example).

What will you find in Father Dajczer's book is a revolutionary way of looking at your spiritual life. If you feel stuck, or like you are just aimlessly moving about in your relationship with God, you need this book!

Interestingly, it was a meeting with St. Padre Pio that changed Fr. Dajczer's life and outlook and one of the interesting anecdotes in the book is about a scientist who presented Padre Pio with his opus vitae, his life's work--two volumes that he wrote over his lifetime and wanted Padre Pio to bless. Padre Pio's reaction to this is worth the price of the book alone.

It was providential that this book fell into my hands at this time when Father Benedict Groeschel and I are working on a Q and A book on the spiritual life that will come out this Fall--and also while I'm working on a "pocket guide" to Confession. Fr. Dajczer points out there are two ways to celebrate the Sacrament of Penance--in an egocentric way or a theocentric way. The egocentric way of course focuses on oneself--we go to confession in order to feel better about ourselves, its all about us (of course the antithesis of the spiritual life, where we are to die to ourselves in order to live for Christ), the "theocentric" way is to be focused on Christ--what have our sins done to Christ? Are we sorry that we have betrayed him, broken our relationship with Him? Is that the goal to once again mend the broken relationship with Christ and His Body the Church?

I confess that I recognize that my own celebration of the sacrament has been more "egocentric" than God centered and of course that is a huge problem if one is seeking spiritual growth--to come closer to God.

Fr. Dajczer points out that the egocentric model in the Scriptures is Judas--who expresses sorrow for his betrayal of Christ, returns the thirty pieces of silver to the Priests, then "repents onto himself"--not to God or Christ--this is suicidal--we can not save ourselves! Peter who also betrays Christ, denying him three times--comes to Christ and expresses his love for Christ, "Lord, you know that I love you."

Check this book out for a real life changing book!

Gratitude and Attitude, by Loretta Oakes

Have you ever let pride get in the way of something? Have you ever wanted to say you're sorry, but couldn't?

Have you ever been unable to go to confession because you were embarrassed about something you did?

You are not alone. It is the human condition. But what keeps us from saying we're sorry?

Pride. Pride gets in the way of a lot of things; it gets in the way of life. It's so insidious that you don't know how deep it runs. Before long you are sinking in an ocean of it, and you don't even know why.

The sands of mediocrity are washing you away and your fear is paralyzing you from swimming to the Truth. What can you do?

The Two Pillars offers the reader a twofold way to battle the storm of pride and mediocrity. It gives the reader the tools to overcome pride through its numerous examples and through the author's gentle waves of revealing the truth to us about ourselves.

We all face the same problems. We all have pride. This book will give you the means by which to release your pride and come back to God. Didn't know you were away from God? None of us realize how pride builds a wall between us and our Father in heaven. We don't understand that we need the attitude of contrition daily. But with the tools of gratitude and attitude we can make the journey home to our Father in truth and light.

Jesus says that unless your house is built on stone, it will not survive. You cannot weather the storm without the right tools, without the right house. Weather the storm with The Two Pillars. You won't be disappointed.
