Summary/Abstract: Contemporary Polish religious discourse in its verbal layer oscillates between two tendencies. On the one hand, it is a striving for a solemn, truly sacral word, established by tradition, spectrified, ritualistic, emphasizing the uniqueness of the relationship between man and God. On the other hand, it is natural for people to strive to refresh their linguistic means, to modernise them so that they better reflect the intellectual and emotional situation of today’s man. This can be seen in the changes in the syntax of sacral texts, in the use of colloquial and environmental elements.
