What the Poles haven`t got that the English,Scots and a lot of others have.

There is a profound spirituality in the inhabitants of the British Isles that many people of other nations and, indeed, sometimes, too eager to live up to Napoleon’s description of them, the British themselves fail to observe.

However, look at any flag pole bearing the flags of those nations or, even better, the Union flag itself, and there it is, as clear as day, a representation of the Christian faith. It was only this morning that, cycling around Warsaw, seeing the flags of Europe, it came home to me.

The Poles may have Jesus Christ and Mary as the unannointed monarchs of their Republic, but they have not got a cross in the flag. I am surprised that no political party has picked up on that.
