Over the past three decades, I’ve spent about three years, all told, in Poland, much of it in Cracow, a city I’ve come to regard as virtually another home. On this anniversary, however, my mind turns to some extraordinary people I first met in June 1991. Many are no longer with us but I cherish the memory of them, for their contributions to my education in matters Polish was incalculable.
I am deeply grateful for Poland — a nation that may yet become a beacon to the world, if they take heed of John Paul II’s social doctrine…
Praise the Lord
