Jean Marie Lustiger
Aaron Jean-Marie Cardinal Lustiger
(September 17, 1926 – August 5, 2007) was a French prelate of the Roman Catholic Church. He was Archbishop of Paris from 1981 until his resignation in 2005. He was made a Cardinal in 1983.
Lustiger's nomination was soon seen as
a defeat by the French clergy whom supported the Second Vatican Council
. He participated to the meeting of the Charismatic movement Comunione e Liberazione in Rimini in summer 1982.
Lustiger was a favorite of Pope John Paul II, partly because of his Polish background and partly
because he staunchly upheld the Pope's conservative views
in the face of much hostility from liberal Catholic opinion in France.
