    Background: PORT MORESBY, PAPUA NEW GUINEA/HONIARA, SOLOMON ISLANDS

    Pope John Paul II continued his tour of Papua New Guinea on May 9 by visiting the sick at Port Moresby's St Joseph's Hospital. He spent several minutes greeting patients before going on to St Mary's Cathedral in Boroko, where he attended Mass. A large congregation, including nuns, priests and missionaries, gathered to watch the service. A blind man read a passage from a bible written in braille, and the Pope presented two gold chalices to the cathedral for "the people of Papua New Guinea". Later, the Pope flew to Honiara in the Solomon islands. He stepped off the aircraft to be greeted by islanders in colourful tribal dress.
