Poland is a community of very different people regarding language, culture and religion, President Bronislaw Komorowski said Tuesday in the Presidential Palace at a New Year reception for representatives of Christian, Jewish and Muslim religious communities.

 

"Community doesn't require homogeneity. Community doesn't require all its participants to be the same. On the contrary, a good community is a community capable of (...) appreciating all that is positive in difference, in that which differs people from one another in so many ways", Komorowski said.

 

Komorowski wished the gathered guests success in resolving national and religious problems in a community spirit and reminded that Poland in the past was a country of multiple nations.

 

"We must continue learning, we must continue putting in energy and effort for a future in which community will be built upon respect for difference", the president noted.

 

Warsaw metropolitan bishop Kazimierz Nycz, representing the Catholic Church, noted that the president's annual New Year receptions for Christians, Jews and Muslims had become a "beautiful tradition".

 

Also present were Poland's head Rabbi Michael Schudrich and Muslim Mufti Tomasz Miskiewicz, and Episcopate secretary bishop Wojciech Polak. (PAP)
