Dziwisz, Stanislaw*

Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, Archbishop of Krakow (Poland), was born on April 27, 1939 in Raba Wyzna, Poland. He was ordained a priest on June 23, 1963 by the-then Auxiliary Bishop of Krakow, Karol Wojtyla.

In 1967 he received a licentiate in theology from the Faculty of Theology of Krakow, and in 1981 he received a doctorate in theology.

He began his pastoral ministry as parochial vicar, and in October 1966 Archbishop Wojtyla appointed him as his chaplain and secretary. When Cardinal Wojtyla of Krakow was elected Pope, he appointed Mons. Dziwisz as his personal secretary; he held this office until the death of Pope John Paul II on April 2, 2005.

On February 7, 1998 he was appointed titular Bishop of San Leone and Adjunct Prefect of the Pontifical Household. He was ordained Bishop by John Paul II on March 19, 1998. On September 29, 2003 he was raised to the dignity of Archbishop.

Pope Benedict XVI appointed the new Cardinal as Archbishop of Krakow on June 3, 2005.

On November 4, 2005, in Krakow, he set in motion the diocesan process of inquiry of the heroic virtue of the Servant of God John Paul II (Karol Wojtyla).

He was created and proclaimed cardinal by Benedict XVI in the consistory of March 24, 2006, of the Title of Santa Maria del Popolo (St. Mary del Popolo).
