On May 4, the Sunday after the Ascension, in the Church of the Brothers Hospitallers of St. John of God in Cracow, Poland, there was a Pontifical Mass celebrated by one of the oldest Polish Bishops, Bishop Albin Malysiak. Bishop Malysiak was once a suffragan bishop to cardinal Wojtyla.
This was the first Mass celebrated in the Extraordinary Rite by a Polish Bishop since the reforms of Vatican II. Several young Catholics received Sacrament of Confirmation in the Traditional Rite from Bishop Malysiak.
In his sermon, the Bishop pointed to the many dangers to the faith and morals in the modern world and the importance of the Catholic Church as the one true Church in the lives of young people. In the conclusion of his sermon, he noticed the beauty of Traditional Liturgy. The event was enthusiastically welcomed by Polish Catholics devoted to Tradition.
