Life / Catholic Church services in Poland [10]

basically the same structure
that should be the essence of the should be the same in any church around the world

In the Philippines, I remember people just sticking their hands out as if they were receiving the Holy Spirit. I wonder what parishioners do in Poland.

what I have learned is that raising up your hands high up should be done only by the priests, these is an act of collecting the prayers of the people and offering it to God...what the congregation can do was to lift his hand in an offertory gesture(symbolizing offering of prayers) for the parishioners holding hands, i can see more Filipinos doing this practice (until the SARS scare), to symbolize a one family with One God the Father

Life / Polish Driving Licence. [314]

visit this site :

"Holders of foreign driving licences which are listed and specified in the Convention on Road Traffic, may operate proper vehicles on the territory of the Republic of Poland for the period of 6 months from the beginning of either a temporal or permanent stay in Poland.

A holder of a driving licence issued outside the territory of the Republic of Poland may obtain a proper Polish driving licence having previously given the foreign licence to proper authorities responsible for issuing driving licences. If the foreign driving licence is not listed in the Convention on Road Traffic (for the list of countries which signed the convention see the table below), the person has to pass the national theory exam and submit a certified translation of the foreign licence."
