Karol Wojtyla (John Paul II) During WWII

One of my weblog entries back on October 18 had to do with an article in the Dutch newspaper Trouw which treated seven supposed contradictions in the long reign of Pope John Paul II, including the question of his record in Nazi-occupied Poland during World War II. (True, that was not when he was Pope; but it was when he was a Catholic seminarian.)

That entry has now prompted Nik to respond with an extensive comment shedding further light on just what the then-Karol Wojtyla did during those trying years, a comment which debunks any allegation of morally cowardly behavior, which it is pretty fair to say the Trouw writer was trying to insinuate. That comment (the link is here) is too valuable to leave only for those who, wandering in the on-line wilderness of my weblog archives, happen to click the “Comment” link of the right past entry. I would instead encourage any readers interested in the life of John Paul II to follow that link above to check it out.
