.- After meeting with Pope John Paul II at the Vatican, the Arcbishop of Warsaw, Cardinal Jozef Glemp, said the Pope might visit Poland next year.
“I believe the Pope will come,” the Cardinal told the Polish News Agency (PAP), adding that “it is not possible this year, it would be next year, in 2005.”
According to the Cardinal, the Pope would visit his homeland to consecrate the recently built Church of Divine Providence in the Polish capital.
Cardinal Glemp also said the Pope was very animated and alert during their meeting.
“Right now there is nothing threatening the life of the Pope,” he explained, adding that “the weakness which one could notice in him last year has diminished.”
The Pope’s last trip—his 102nd outside of Italy—took place last September in Slovakia, during which he maintained a busy schedule despite his poor health.
