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.
