The newly elected prime minister of Poland was received by the Pope at the Vatican today. The discussions between the two leaders focused on emphasizing moral and religious values in Poland.
Prime Minister Donald Tusk, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone and Archbishop Dominique Mamberti, discussed the state of affairs in Poland “with particular reference to Christian moral and religious values which are part of the heritage of the Polish people."
"Mention was also made of the traditionally good relations between Poland and the Holy See, which were given particular impetus during the pontificate of Pope John Paul II", the Holy See's Press Office stated.
"Finally," the release said, "attention turned to questions regarding Europe and the international role of Poland."
