A cardinal who was close to St. John Paul II died Saturday, two weeks after his 94th birthday.
The death of Cardinal Marian Jaworski was announced Sept. 5 by the press office of the Archdiocese of Kraków.
Jaworski anointed John Paul II before the pope's death in 2005.
In a tribute published Sept. 6, Cardinal Stanisław Dziwisz, John Paul II's personal secretary, said "these two great people of the Church were united until their death by the Church's deep faith and love -- the courage and readiness to serve the Church in difficult times."
