This semester, two UST Law students who are Murphy Institute Scholars will be blogging about their experiences as interns supporting the work of the the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See at the United Nations in New York and Geneva. Rachana Chhin will be blogging from New York, and Joseph Grodahl Bieve from Geneva. Joseph has been travelling to Geneva via Poland, and has already posted some fascinating observations about his visits to Kraków ("the archdiocese where Karol Wojtyła sat as archbishop before becoming Pope John Paul II"), Częstochowa ("a sort of spiritual capital of Poland"), and Auschwitz (where Joseph describes how he can feel "he darkness and evil of the place"). His perceptive remarks are accompanied by photos -- including of the cell where Fr. Maximilian Kolbe embraced his martyrdom.
