At the beginning of the 20th century the Polish immigrants constituted one eighth of the American Catholics. At the same time their representation in the American episcopate was highly disproportional. The American Polonia repeatedly attempted to influence the Vatican on the subject of nominating the Polish bishops in the dioceses densely inhabited by the Polish immigrants. The Rev. Waclaw Kruszka, traveled to Vatican three times to intervene on that matter. The text describes his quest in the year 1923, its circumstances and consequences and the attempts of the Polonia to gain support from the diplomats of the Polish Republic. Polish diplomats, especially Józef Wierusz Kowalski, undertook back-stage arrangements dealing with these affairs. However, lack of knowledge how to influence the nominations as well as problems among the American Polonia rendered achieving satisfying results impossible.
