Wyszynski to be beatified Sunday

Forty years ago, the massive funeral procession of Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński was led by a banner that read, “God gives us such a father and shepherd once in a thousand years.” He will be beatified on Sept. 12 in Warsaw and known henceforth as “Blessed Stefan Wyszyński.” But in Poland he will remain always the “Primate of the Millennium,” as that processional banner acknowledged.
