Oldest Catholic bishop, until recently apostolic manager of Pinsk Diocese of Catholic Church Cardinal Kazimierz Swiatek died this morning.
He was 96. Last year he was severely ill. This person became the first Belarusian cardinal for the last 200 years. Thanks to him, the Pinsk Cathedral was restored. The official crowning ceremony for the legendary Icon of Budslav Mother of God took place in 1998. The wonder-working image is one of the most revered icons of the Catholic Church. After the crowning, the icon became a relic of the national importance for Belarus. The cardinal will be buried on the 25th of July at the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary in Pinsk.
