Argentinians remember life of Pope John Paul II

.- Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, who was Karol Wojtyla’s personal secretary for 40 years, is visiting Argentina this week to speak about the life of the late Pontiff and his cause of beatification.

According to the AICA news agency, Cardinal Dziwisz was invited by the Catholic University of Argentina to visit the country, where the government of Buenos Aires bestowed on him the title of “Illustrious Citizen.”  The cardinal spoke to seminarians and students at the university’s theology school about John Paul II as a “prophet of peace.”

Cardinal Dziwisz will remain in Argentina until November 22. He will visit several Polish communities, the Basilica of Our Lady of Lujan, and he will meet with college students.

The cardinal's visit will center on the unveiling of a bust of John Paul II that will be displayed at the St. Joseph Convention Center, outside the auditorium that is named in his honor.

Cardinal Dziwisz will also receive an honorary doctorate from the Catholic University of Argentina for “his faithful and unconditional service to the Catholic Church.”
