Cardinal Dziwisz receives Anti-Defamation League award

Catholic World News - May 28, 2010

The Anti-Defamation League on May 26 honored Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz of Krakow, Pope John Paul II’s personal secretary, with its Cardinal Bea Interfaith Award.

“Cardinal Dziwisz is a valued friend to the Jewish people and someone I know I can trust and turn to in moments of tension or controversy,” said Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League.

“As the Bishop of Krakow, I would like to assure all of you that the Catholic Church in Poland wants to follow the example of Pope John Paul II and courageously uncover and reject everything which makes the life of the Polish Catholics depart from the Gospel,” said Cardinal Dziwisz. “For this reason, we note with shame that despite the unambiguous teachings of recent Popes on the appropriate attitudes of Catholics to Jews, many among us have not been able to overcome prejudices, inveterate resentments and harmful stereotypes.”
