Cardinal Dziwisz celebrates Mass before tomb of John Paul II

.- The Archbishop of Krakow, Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, celebrated Mass this week before the tomb of the Servant of God John Paul II and prayed for his beatification and for national reconciliation for Poland.

“We pray for wisdom and reflection as well for those who suffered injustice during Communism, that they may not be carried away by emotions, but rather that they might look to Christ who from the Cross grants forgiveness,” the Cardinal said during the Mass that was concelebrated by 50 priests.
 
In recalling the suffering of the Church in Poland, the cardinal prayed that John Paul II would intercede for the Polish people and that they might receive the spirit of forgiveness   and reconciliation.  “We also direct our prayer to the Father in heaven together with the new Servant of God, who visited the prison at Rebebbia to forgive Ali Agca in person, even though he did not ask him to,” Cardinal Dziwisz said.
