Longtime Pax Christi member and recently named Ambassador of Peace Judith Kelly is the author of Just call me Jerzy,” a biography of the Polish priest Jerzy Popiełuszko, a popular and outspoken critic of the Communist regime who was kidnapped and murdered in Poland in 1984 and beatified by the Catholic Church in 2010.

In mid-February 2023, Judith was interviewed by George Matysek, a staff member with the Catholic Review, a ministry of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, about the life and witness of Blessed Jerzy.

Use this link to listen to the interview, approximately 30 minutes, on the “Just call me Jerzy” website.
