Polish cardinal briefs pope on World Youth Day

In an interview for Vatican Radio, the Archbishop of Kraków, Cardinal Stanisław Dziwisz, has said that he spoke to Pope Francis on Saturday about the pontiff’s forthcoming visit to Poland for World Youth Day.

“I told him about the great enthusiasm surrounding the event, not only in Poland but across the world, with pilgrims from 194 countries and 930 bishops expected to arrive,” Dziwisz said.

“Preparations for the event are proceeding well,” the cardinal told Vatican Radio. “The only thing is: we have to pray for good weather,” he added.

While in Poland for World Youth Day, which runs from 25-31 July, Pope Francis will visit the former Nazi German concentration camp of Auschwitz and the Black Madonna shrine in the southern city of Częstochowa.
