Condolences from the President to the Archbishop of Paris

President Lech Kaczyński sent condolences to His Eminence André Vingt-Trois, Archbishop of Paris

President Lech Kaczyński sent condolences to His Eminence André Vingt-Trois, Archbishop of Paris, in connection with the death of Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger.

Please read below:

”Your Eminence!

It was with great sorrow that I learned of the death of Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger, retired Archbishop of Paris, a great friend of Poland and the Polish people.

The late Cardinal Lustiger was a special person. He let himself be known as a man committed to international and inter-religion dialogue, being especially a fervent animator of Christian-Jewish reconciliation.

Cardinal Lustiger was also a promoter of Poland. He came several times to the Homeland of his parents, who came from Będzin in Zagłębie Dąbrowskie. As a close collaborator of John Paul II he also accompanied him during pilgrimages to Poland, at the time enslaved by the communist regime. Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger also cared about Poles, who emigrated to France in the last decades. I personally remember his involvement in the French effort to assist “Solidarity” during the period of martial law.

Your Eminence, uniting in prayer with all, who were affected by the death of Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger, I wish to convey my most sincere expressions of compassion”.
