Spanish University to give honorary doctorate to Cardinal Dziwisz, George Weigel


A well known Catholic University in Spain will give a Honoris Causa Doctorate to Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, Archbishop of Krakow (Poland) and the US Catholic author George Weigel.

Both personalities will be honored by Abad Oliba University for their roles in promoting the teachings of the Catholic Church and the life and ministry of Pope John Paul II.

Cardinal Dziwisz is being honored for his 27 years as John Paul II’s personal secretary and Weigel for his work in writing "Witness to Hope," which is regarded as the definitive biography of the late Pope.

The ceremony will take place on November 14 at the university's main campus of Bellesguard, in the northern Spanish city of Barcelona.
