    Background: VATICAN CITY, VATICAN

    Pope John Paul the Second consecrated four new archbishops and 10 bishops at a ceremony at Saint Peter's Basilica in the Vatican on January 6. Two of the new bishops were from the Pope's native country of Poland. He conferred the prestigious post of Secretary of the Tribunal of the "Segnatura Apostolica" - the highest papal court - on one of the new Polish bishops, Mr. Zenon Grochelowski. The other, Mr. Julius Paetz, who is said by Vatican officials to be particularly close to the Pope, was ordained as a Bishop of the Polish diocese of Lomza. Two Czechoslovaks, Mr. Domenico Hrusovski and Mr. Jaroslav Skarvada, were named as Bishops responsible for the spiritual welfare of their expatriate fellow countrymen. The new archbishops were Mr. Antonio Bommarco and Mr. Francesco Monterisi of Italy, Mr. Jose Laboa of Spain and West German Mr. Karl Joseph Rauber. The other new bishops were four Africans and two Italians.
