Papal reflection on deceased Polish cardinal

Catholic World News - September 07, 2011

Near the conclusion of his public audience on September 7, Pope Benedict XVI devoted a few moments to a reflection on the death of Cardinal Andrei Maria Deskur.

In remarks addressed particularly to Polish pilgrims, the Pope mentioned the previous day’s funeral for Cardinal Deskur, “a friend of Blessed John Paul II and your countryman.” He said that Cardinal Deskur—who lived with infirmity for years as the result of a severe stroke he suffered in 1978—continued to serve the Pontiff “with prayer and suffering.”
