A meeting in the editor’s office of the “Tygodnik Powszechny”, September 7, 1989

“A visit in the “Tygodnik Powszechny” (Weekly Popular) is a reinforcing moment of my life. It is here that I have the possibility to have an ‘inside look’ into the redoubt of open Catholicism and Polish tolerance” – it is with these words that the legendary Warsaw Courier signed himself in the visitors’ book of “Tygodnik Powszechny”, on September 7, 1989.
