NCR Blog: Papal Biographer George Weigel on Krakow
By Carrie Gress, Ph.D.
George Weigel is the author of the biography of Pope John Paul II, Witness to Hope. Few can claim to know the most famous son of Poland better than he. What most people don’t know is that Weigel has spent most of July in Krakow for more than twenty years with the Tertio Millennio Seminar on the Free Society. I asked him about the changes he has seen in the city over the last two decades and what Pope Saint John Paul II might say to the World Youth Day pilgrims that will descend upon the city.
