    Background: VATICAN, ITALY

    Archbishop Jozef Glemp arrived in Rome on October 25 for urgent consultations with Pope John Paul II on the growing tensions between the Roman Catholic Church and Poland's military government, Vatican sources said. Social unrest caused by Warsaw's banning of the independent trade union Solidarity had delayed the Polish primate's visit, initially scheduled for October 8. Speaking to reporters after his arrival, Archbishop Glemp said that although Church-State relations in Poland had not collapsed entirely, he viewed the situation with greater pessimism than when he last visited Rome in July. In contrast with his three previous visits to the Vatican this year, the Polish Primate declined to meet Poland's leader General Jaruzelski before leaving. Vatican sources said the question now facing Catholic leaders was how far to continue seeking co-operation with a government which had yielded no ground since the imposition of martial law in Poland last December. Archbishop Glemp is also expected to discuss the Pope's visit to Poland. Scheduled for last August, Pope John Paul's visit to his native country was postponed at the request of the Polish authorities.
