The apostolic nunciature in Poland announced Friday disciplinary measures against a 97-year-old cardinal.
A Nov. 6 statement, posted on the apostolic nunciature’s website, said that Cardinal Henryk Gulbinowicz would be subject to strict restrictions as the result of an investigation.
The nunciature did not specify why it had taken the step. It said only that the Holy See had imposed the measures “as a result of the investigation of the accusations against Cardinal Henryk Gulbinowicz and after analyzing other accusations concerning the past of the cardinal.”
The nunciature explained that the churchman, who served as archbishop of Wrocław, in southwest Poland, from 1976 to 2004, was prohibited from attending any celebrations or public meetings. He was also forbidden to use bishops’ insignia.
