Catholic Prayer: Polish Religious Expressions

Description:

Here is a common Polish greeting.

There is another custom which is part of the everyday life of the Polish people and that is the greeting as one enters a home. Instead of a "hello" one greets the occupants with "Praise be to Jesus." The occupants reply by "Forever and ever. Amen."
