Injured Polish race-car driver receives relic of John Paul II
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.
