Ecclesial Intrigue


A jealous priest spied on the Pope while he was a bishop in Poland.

An adviser to Cracow's top church officials, Kulczycki was incensed that the younger Wojtyla was elevated to the rank of bishop and then archbishop while he was passed over. His reports denounced Wojtyla as a lightweight and dismissed his growing popularity.

Eventually, the secret police caught on that their informer's envy of Wojtyla was skewing his judgment. But his reports on Wojtyla's meetings with Cracow intellectuals and activists jeopardized many of the people who developed close ties to the future pope.
