These are great photos! I've been following his visit through EWTN and Polish TV. The Polish TV has so much more coverage, but I can't speak a word in Polish :)

I thought you might like to watch some. Here's a link.

Thank you very much Moneybags! I just watched Pope Benedict giving an address to the people outside his residence! Now they have a documentary about JP2!

This is great! God bless you!
