  • Description

    STEFAN CARDINAL WYSZYNSKI, WHO EMERGED FROM THREE YEARS' ARREST IN 1956 TO LEAD THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH BACK TO A POSITION OF STRENGTH IN POLAND, ARRIVED BY TRAIN IN ROME, ITALY, FEB 16, FOR THE PREPARATIONS FOR THE OCTOBER ECUMENICAL (UNIVERSAL) COUNCIL - THE FIRST THIS CENTURY - OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AT THE VATICAN.

    VATICAN OFFICIALS, PHOTOGRAPHERS AND A LARGE NUMBER OF POLISH PRIESTS, NUNS AND REFUGEES FLOCKED TO THE RAIL STATION TO GREET THE CARDINAL, LAST IN ROME IN 1958 FOR THE ELECTION AND CORONATION OF POPE JOHN 23. THE CARDINAL RAISED HIS HAND IN BLESSING THE CROWD PACKING THE PLATFORM AND THEN SURROUNDED BY A BEVY OF PHOTOGRAPHERS MADE FOR HIS WAITING CAR.

    DURING HIS VISIT - A STAY OF SEVERAL WEEKS - THE PRIMATE OF POLAND WILL BE RECEIVED IN AUDIENCE BY THE 80-YEAR-OLD POPE. OFFICIALLY HIS VISIT - LIKE THAT OF OTHER CARDINALS NOW ARRIVING IN ROME - IS REGARDED AS THE TRADITIONAL JOURNEY OF A BISHOP COMING TO GIVE AN ACCOUNT OF AFFAIRS IN HIS DIOCESE. BUT FOR THE PREPARATIONS OF THE ECUMENICAL COUNCIL, HE WILL TAKE HIS PLACE WITH THE OTHER CARDINALS TO CONFER ON THE ELABORATION OF THE AGENDA.
