Archbishop Metropolitan Mieczysław Mokrzycki

Mindful of the fact that it has a duty to give an example of holiness, charity, humility and simplicity of life, the diocesan archbishop should try all means to help holiness grow and increase among believers, according to everyone’s vocation. Because he is God`s servant, he must take care that the faithful entrusted to his care, grow in grace, and learn the mystery of Easter and live it through participation in the Sacraments. (CIC 387).
