A son of the Polish prime minister has been ordained a Catholic priest, and he celebrated his first Mass this last Sunday.
Father Tymoteusz Szydlo, 25, celebrated Mass at the church in the southern Polish town of Przecieszyn, where he was baptized as a child, the U.K. newspaper The Catholic Herald reported. He was ordained over the weekend.
"Human words are unable to express the gratitude I owe You, my God," said the newly ordained priest. "Therefore, I humbly ask You to keep me in Your holy service."
The priest is a member of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, which celebrates a Latin-language Mass in the Extraordinary Form. Fr. Szydlo's mother, Prime Minister Beata Szydlo, heads a government formed by the ruling Law and Justice party.
