Cardinal Franciszek Macharski, Karol Wojtyla's successor in Krakow, dies at age 89

2016-08-02

The former Archbishop of Krakow died on Tuesday, days after he received a surprise visit from Pope Francis while he was at WYD in Poland. 

Cardinal Macharski was born May 20, 1927, and played a significant role in opposing the Nazi occupation of his era. 

He guided the Church of his diocese during the difficult transition from communism to democracy. 

The 89-year-old cardinal served as the Archbishop of Krakow since 1978, when Pope John Paul II was elected as pope, and retired in 2005. 

With his death, the College of Cardinals now has 211 cardinals, and 112 of them are able to vote in an eventual conclave.
