The heroic opponent of Communism obtained the healing of a victim of cancer; now set for beatification.
In addition to his friendship with the future pope, Wyszynski is known for how heroically and effectively he resisted Communism.
The miracle involved a woman with thyroid cancer who was healed in 1989. In the ensuing 30 years, she’s had no remission.
Wyszynski (1901-1981) endured house arrest during his time as archbishop of Warsaw, and as well was unable to go to Rome when he was made a cardinal in 1953.
He was instrumental in the future John Paul II being named archbishop of Krakow in 1964.
