The Holy Father Francis appointed 46-year-old Fr. Lukasz Buzun, a Pauline, as an auxiliary bishop in the diocese of Kalisz.

The nomination was announced on 5 July 2014. Fr. Lukasz Buzun has been realizing his religious vocation in the Paulines’ Order since 1989. He received priestly ordination at Jasna Gora on 8 June 1996. He had been a priest in Wieruszow and Wlodawa, where the Pauline Fathers have monasteries. He graduated from the BA studies in psychology at the Papal Theological Faculty in Wroclaw. In the year 2010 he undertook giving lectures at the University of Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski in Warsaw in the Department of Spiritual Direction. In 2010 he gained the academic degree of PhD in theological studies in the field of theology of spirituality. In 2013 he graduated from the studies of systemic psychotherapy in Krakow. Nearly three months ago, on 16 April 2014, Fr. Buzun became the prior of Jasna Gora, earlier, three years before he had been the sub-prior of the monastery, and since the year 2008 – he has been the deputy of the director of Radio ‘Jasna Gora’.

On the website of the diocese of Kalisz, the information about the new auxiliary bishop was given under the relevant title: ‘From Mary to Joseph’. The bishop of Kalisz Edward Janiak, in a special announcement informs that priestly ordination of Fr. Buzun will take place at Jasna Gora on Saturday 16 August 2014 at 11.00.

Bishop Janiak quotes the words of John Paul II about the bishopric ministry: ‘Raising to the bishopric dignity is a great honour for the human being; indeed the bishop has the same power as Christ which he can pass it over to others. It is also ministry for Christ and the Church, which is excellent and demanding’. (16 October 1986).

We remember in prayer to Mary at Jasna Gora about Father Bishop the Nominee who is sent to the diocese with its famous sanctuary of St. Joseph in Kalisz.
