January 3, 2017: An Incredible Experience Awaits the Curator of Papal Artifacts at the Tomb of Pope St. John Paul II
Papal Artifacts joined in the Curator’s joy last winter when he was able to attend Mass with the former secretary to Pope St. John Paul II, Cardinal Stanislaus Dziwisz, who was presiding at his altar. Father Kunst was able to have a conversation with him.
Fr. Kunst was the tour director of a small group of pilgrims who spent the week in Rome.
Truly this experience was a high light for all of them, and in particular for our Curator who was privileged to have seven audiences with John Paul, many of which were attended by then Bishop Dziwisz because of his role as secretary.
The Cardinal, who retired on December 8 of 2016, was so cordial and hospitable to this group.
Papal Artifacts asks for blessings upon his retirement and continued best wishes for him.
