It was known from the very beginning that the cardinal’s farewell would be shrouded in mystery. The Archdiocese of Wrocław announced in a special announcement that “according to the will of the late Cardinal’s family, the funeral ceremonies will take place outside the Archdiocese of Wrocław”.
However, as “Fakt” noted, the ceremony took place in the morning and only a few of the closest clergy took part. A wreath and several bouquets of flowers and candles appeared on the tomb. The name of the card. Gulbinowicz, as well as an information board, have not yet appeared on the monument.

In recent weeks, more and more information has surfaced about the sexual abuse of minors by Cardinal Henryk Gulbinowicz. As a metropolitan of Wrocław, he also had to report on other pedophile priests, including Paweł K., who was transferred from parish to parish after the revelation of subsequent scandals.
Confirming the confusion, Cardinal Gulbinowicz, the whole issue was expressed by the Archdiocese of Wrocław itself. In a special statement, she said that “the severity of the sanctions against the cardinal indicates that the investigation confirmed the truth of the charges against the cardinal in public space.”
