Miliony Polaków żyją w anglojęzycznych krajach, bardzo często nie mają możliwości uczestniczenia w polskiej mszy świętej – dla nich przeznaczam ten dział, modlitwy w języku angielskim. Mam nadzieję, że nauka tych modlitw pozwoli Wam lepiej i aktywniej uczestniczyć w życiu duchowym na obczyźnie. W Stanach Zjednoczonych żyje prawie 10 milionów Polaków, w Wielkiej Brytanii około miliona zaś w Australii około 200 tysięcy – te dane są zapewne zaniżone, szczególnie jeśli chodzi o Wielką Brytanię – tysiące Polaków, którzy wyjechali za chlebem na obczyznę nie powinno porzucać swojej wiary jedynie przez nieznajomość języka – zapraszam do nauki!
