Injured Polish race-car driver receives relic of John Paul II
Catholic World News - February 11, 2011
Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz has given two relics of the Pope John Paul II to Robert Kubica, the Formula One race-car driver who is now recovering from injuries suffered in a raceway crash.
Cardinal Dziwisz, the longtime personal secretary to the late Pontiff, sent Kubica a medal containing a strip of one of the deceased Pope’s vestment and a drop of his blood. A vial of blood from Pope John Paul II was given by doctors to his secretary at the time of his death.
