Polish Cardinal Nagy, friend and adviser to Pope John Paul II, dies at 91

 | 

Polish Cardinal Stanislaw Nagy -- a close friend, theological adviser to and skiing partner of Blessed John Paul II -- died Wednesday in Krakow at the age of 91.

Like the late pope, Nagy studied at Jagiellonian University in Krakow and taught at the Catholic University of Lublin. He used to ski with the future pope near Zakopane in the Tatra Mountains and served the then-archbishop of Krakow as a theological consultant in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Beyond tradition, ritual, archbishop's installation like family reunion

On the 32nd anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood, Archbishop Michael Jackels was installed May 30 as the new chief pastor of the 175-year-old Dubuque archdiocese.

After the 59-year-old took a seat in the center of the sanctuary at the Church of the Nativity in Dubuque, retiring Archbishop Jerome Hanus, bowed to his successor, the 10th archbishop to hold the post. An assembly of about 1,200 people erupted in applause.
