Polish Catholic Church to Pray Against Road Rage; Priest: We Behave Like Pagans When Driving

Poland's Catholic Church will hold a day of prayer for the nation's drivers in an attempt to use the Christian spirit to quell road rage, the Telegraph (British) website reports today (March 30, 2011).

"Many of us behave like pagans when we're driving," said Father Marian Midura, the organizer of the prayer day, which has the support of the national police.

The prayer day comes as the latest contribution by the Catholic Church to road safety in Poland.

In the past, priests in Poland have accompanied traffic police to add the moral gravitas of the Christian faith to any speeding ticket issued.
