POLAND: THE BISHOPS CONFERENCE ABOUT MGR. WIELGUS’ RESIGNATION (2)

” “Cardinal Stanis³aw Dziwisz, John Paul II’s special secretary and currently the archbishop of Cracow, also asked that Stanis³aw Wielgus’ decision be respected. "We accept the decision taken by the Holy Father. And that is an order to us, as well as a suggestion. The Holy Father took this decision, and we must be grateful to him for such decision", he said last night at the end of Sunday Mass in the Cathedral of Warsaw. The opinions voiced by the Polish political representatives about archbishop Wielgus’ decision to hand in his resignation are mostly positive. Some of them, for instance the former Minister of Foreign Affairs and illustrious expert W³adys³aw Bartoszewski, highlight mgr. Wielgus’ "civic courage". Others, such as mgr. Tadeusz Pieronek, insist that "the atmosphere that has come to surround the whole event is a big challenge for all believers and at the same time it is a serious outrage, and therefore such resignation seems to be the right decision". Others, such as father Adam Boniecki, the former director of the Polish edition of "L’Osservatore Romano" and currently the editor-in-chief of the Catholic weekly "Tygodnik Powszechny", highlight that the Holy See "is prepared to accomplish things even on a Sunday". ” “
