The beatification of Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński, the former Primate of Poland who heroically resisted Communism, has been postponed because of the coronavirus.
Cardinal Kazimierz Nycz said April 28 that the beatification would no longer take place as planned in Warsaw's Piłsudski Square on June 7.
"A pandemic threatening the health and life of people makes it impossible to prepare and carry out this ceremony," the archbishop of Warsaw said. "The first priority must be concern for human safety."
A new date will be announced when the pandemic is over, the cardinal said, adding that the Holy See supported the decision.
