This is one of the many stories that causes people to turn their backs on the church institution.
The “o2” portal described the story of a single mother who looked after her sick mother for a long time, which forced her to give up paid work.
“When we were hiding grandpa, we paid 300 zlotys for the funeral “
This situation obviously caused considerable financial problems for the woman who was concerned about her health. When the seriously ill senior woman died, her daughter decided to fulfill her last will, which was the presence of the parish priest at her funeral, the celebration of a mass by him and the conduct of the burial ceremony at the cemetery.
During her lifetime, the senior woman was closely associated with the parish and the parish priest. The conversation with the clergyman was completely different than what the late woman's daughter had expected. After presenting her difficult financial situation and her mother's last will, when asked about the cost of burial, she heard that she would be responsible for this service PLN 1,200.
Unfortunately, she could only pay PLN 500, to which the clergyman finally agreed , however, his comment calls for vengeance to heaven – it is like working for free – the pastor replied, proposing the amount of 1000 zlotys. The woman stated at the time that she would have to look for another parish, as she did not have the amount.
As a result, the parish priest agreed to pay 500 zlotys for the service, but when asked if he would celebrate the rite, he stated that he would be or another clergyman.
During the funeral, it turned out that the parish priest was he delegated another clergyman to celebrate the rite and the mass. Apparently he had had the will of his faithful parishioner for nothing lately. The journalists went to the spokesman of the Gdańsk Archdiocese, Fr. Michał Kwiecień, who informed that the faithful of the Archdiocese of Gdańsk have the right to a voluntary sacrifice for burial.
