Poles to follow World Youth Days through media

Over 80 percent of Poles do not intend to take part in World Youth Days, but nearly 70 percent intend to keep track of the event via media broadcasts, a survey by pollster CBOS shows.

No more than four percent of the respondents say they will take part in Holy Masses said by Pope Francis.
An overwhelming majority of those questioned, almost 90 percent, consider next week's World Youth Days an important event for Poland, while a little over 10 percent think otherwise.

Nearly 90 percent of Poles say World Youth Days will help promote Poland abroad. Many, however, fear the event poses a terrorist threat. One in four, meanwhile, does not share such concerns. The survey was run on a sample of 983 adults between 30 and 7 July.
