Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jan Chryzostom Korec (born January 22, 1924, in Bo any) is a Slovakian Jesuit Cardinal and Bishop Emeritus of the Diocese of Nitra. In his youth Jan Korec was an active Boy Scout. Korec entered the Society of Jesus in 1939 and studied Catholic theology and philosophy. During the order's suppression under the Communists, he was forced to stop his philosophical studies. He entered the priesthood in 1950. One year later, at the age of 27, he was secretly consecrated a bishop by Bishop Pavol Hnilica. In the following nine years, Korec worked in a factory.show more
