The aim of this article is to analyse the religious discourse on Polish Facebook in relation to the refugee crisis. The primary focus is on how religious memory is presented. A discourse analysis implemented by the author helps to identify and examine certain nodal points related to the religious debate about refugees, and then instruments used to recall religious memory are shown. In the course of the analysis, the author uses the theory of religion as a chain of memory. As a result, a complex attitude of Polish users toward the Pope, Islam, Christian martyrdom and religious buildings is shown. All of them refer to religious traces from the past.
