Pope Arrives in Poland

From Radio Polonia:

Upon his arrival in Warsaw, pope Benedict XVI expressed his joy of being in the homeland of late John Paul II. The pontiff stressed that he came to Poland
to walk the routes of his predecessor. During this visit Benedict XVI would like
to meet and get to know the generation of John Paul II as well as all the generations which grew up under the spiritual care of the Polish-born pope who died in April last year. President Lech Kaczynski responded to the motto of the pope’s visit by declaring that Poles are willing to be strong in the faith and that their hearts are open to the message of Benedict the XVI. Later this afternoon president Kaczynski will receive the pope.
