Służcie Bogu i ojczyźnie – kardynał August Hlond do młodzieży
Serve to God and motherland – cardinal August Hlond to the youth
Languages of publication
Cardinal August Hlond is a distinguished personality of the Catholic Church in Poland. His entire life and work as the priest, archbishop, apostolic administrator, Cardinal and Primate of Poland was devoted to the service of God, His Church, Salesian Society and the country. Being the spiritual son of Saint John Bosco, he was undoubtedly sensitive to the needs of the Polish youths of the time as well as their living conditions. This article is to present the issue of the youth in Cardinal’s life as three-dimensional: his growth and youth in his natural family; his beginnings as a young boy in the Salesian Society in which he decided to carry on with his priestly vocation; his spiritual growth to the point of becoming “the Good Shepherd of the Church” in Poland.
