GRZEGORZ POLAK

We received an excellent present for the canonization of John Paul II from the Paulines who had edited a Polish biography of the Holy Father in Polish, written by an Italian historian and publicist Andrea Riccardo. His work should be placed on a par with the exemplary monograph by George Weigl, considered as the best one so far.

FR. WOJCIECH GÓRALSKI

It is doubtless that the Church has a duty to care about its all believers – also those who after contracting their canonic (ecclesiastical) marriages have got divorced and then they entered into new marriage, certainly the civil one.
