Pope John Paul II: A Letter Signed by Him as Cardinal on October 6, 1972
Pope John Paul II: Signed Letter on Oct. 6, 1972 as Cardinal Wojtyla

Father Kunst recently acquired several letters signed by  Cardinal Karol Wojtyla.

This one was written on October 6, 1972, and includes the letterhead from the Diocese of Krakow, where Cardinal Wojtyla resided.

An interesting sidelight to this particular letter is its contents concern the Sacrosong Festival of which Cardinal Wojtyla was a great supporter.  Papal Artifacts has several diplomas concerning that festival as part of this Collection.

Because he was canonized in 2014 and is the Curator’s favorite saint, these are a remarkable addition to this Collection.
