Polish PM’s son ordained as priest

Warsow: Tymoteusz Szydło, 25, son of Poland’s Prime Minister was ordained on Saturday May 27 in a ceremony attended by the Polish head of government and her family in the southern city of Bielsko-Biała.

After the ceremony, the Polish prime minister said she was proud of her son, who had studied for six years at a seminary in Kraków.

In May last year, Tymoteusz Szydło was ordained a deacon, a step toward becoming a full-fledged priest. Earlier still, he made a promise of celibacy and obedience.

“This is not an easy road,” Szydło told reporters after Saturday’s ceremony.

“Especially these days I think young people like them have an extremely important mission to fulfil. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for … all of my son’s fellow seminarians and for my son. I hope they will persevere and do a lot of good for everyone, for all of us. They are wonderful young people.”

On Sunday, newly ordained Father Tymoteusz officiated his first Mass in Prime Minister Szydło’s home parish of Przecieszyn in Poland’s south.

Prime Minister Szydło’s other son, 23-year-old Błażej, is a medical student.

  14. Chhotebhai’s comments are relevant. Fr.Tymoteusz Szydło, could have chosen Politics after his mom and dad but he chose to answer a call of sacrifice. Ad Multos Annos.The Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheeen once remarked ‘So many young souls have left the lights and glamour of the world to the shades and shadows of the cross where Saints are made’.

  15. Fr. Tymoteusz Szydło heard the call of the Lord and that is important.. to hear God’s call because We are heading in the direction of times that are full of trials and tribulations… God wants remnants and we need to keep our inner spirit alert to God’s voice… God bless Fr. Szydlo with patience, endurance and spirituality that he continues to do the will of God…

  16. God calls His people when He wants whether he is a only son or a daughter, rich or poor. When He calls no body can stop him; no power,no wealth, no money, etc. The call is divine. Congratulations and best wishes in Jesus ministry’ to you Fr.Tymoteusz .

  17. The Lord is good and kind. He has chosen a wonderful person who will inspire the youth of the world. Its the beginning of God’s plan to draw more younger generation towards Him .
    We pray that he draw strength from Jesus all the time to fulfill Jesus’ plan.
    Praise God. Thank you Jesus

  18. Praise God for this family. The Polish prime minister is a beacon of hope for Christians in a Europe betrayed by its politicians. All Christians should pray for world political leaders that God may use them to further his kingdom and bring God back into our world.

    MAY GOD BLESS you in evey step you take in your priesthood and make us Catholics proud
    We thank your parents for this gift of YOU.

  20. Every year, there are hundreds of young men being ordained as priests and scores of women being consecrated as nuns among Catholics all over the world. However, after reading the comments of the readers, it is felt that the readers are more awed and excited by the fact that newly ordained priest, Fr Tymoteusz Szydlo is a son of the Prime Minister of Poland. While congratulating the priest, I wish to inform that his mother Ms Beata Maria Szydlo took over as the PM on 16.11.2015. She was not the PM when he had joined the seminary 6 years ago at the age of 19. Moreover, only six year seminary training prior to his ordination seems to be much less compared to the training imparted elsewhere. Also, becoming a ‘priest’ or a ‘nun’ is only a medium to love and serve the community. Majority of them tend to become just ‘professionals’ after initial few years. It is prayed and hoped that Fr Tymoteusz Szydlo would be different from the rest. Best wishes to him.

  21. Heartiest Congratulations to you dear Father
    You are a blessing to the Country and the Role Model to the millions all over the world to be imitated.
    You have sacrificed everything for the greater glory of the Lord.
    Thank you

    Fr Santosh Salve msfs
