Private Theologian of Pope Benedict: Fr. Wojciech Giertych, O.P.

Such a nice man.  He was our professor in Rome at the Dominican Univeristy, the Angelicum.  One day the Rector Magnificus entered the classroom with the other Polish Dominicans present that day and made the announcement and it was a joyous surprise for everybody.  He still teaches at the Angelicum twice a week during the spring semester and if you want to take his course it's entitled: Fundamental Moral Theology.  He is a lovely man, very humble.  He speakes English from his youth in a boarding school in England.  He can sometimes be seen on the 64 or 40 express bus and always has a big smile.   


  1. Hello! I am Don Antonio, a catholic priest from Malta. Your blog is simply wonderful. I am posting to you this youtube link: the antifona "HODIE MARIA VIRGO" sung at the Gozo Cathedral during the feast of Santa Maria (Assumption):

  2. Dear JPSonnen,
    Thank you for your post. Is there any way you could send me this picture in its original? I have been looking for pictures of the Papal Theologian of at least 1 MB in size and am having no luck.

    Thank you,
