Archbishop's sudden death stuns Polish Church
February 11, 2011
Catholics in Poland were jolted by the sudden death of Archbishop Jozef Zycinski of Lublin on February 10.
Archbishop Zycinksi, who was 62, died in Rome during a visit there. His death was originally attributed to a stroke; doctors later determined that it was caused by a heart attack.
Noted as a theologian and writer, Archbishop Zycinksi had led the Lublin archdiocese—the home of the famous Catholic University—since 1997.
