Józef Kardynał Glemp: Requiescat in pace

Jozef Cardinal Glemp
His Eminence Jozef Cardinal Glemp died this past January 23rd after a long illness. Cardinal Glemp was the successor of the "Primate of the Millennium", the incomparable Stefan Cardinal Wyszynski (of whom I will be posting a number of his reflections). The Holy Father, in writing his condolences to the Archbishop of Warsaw included these words: 

"He was a 'just' man, in the spirit of St. Joseph, his patron, and those who, in biblical tradition, knew how to listen to the voice of God's call, addressed not just to them personally, but also to the communities to which they were sent. Such justice, full of humble obedience to God's will, was the basis of his deep love for God and man, which was his light, inspiration, and strength in the difficult ministry of leading the Church at a time when significant social and political transformations were affecting Poland and Europe."

May the Cardinal's soul be received into the mercy of Christ.
