    Background: JASNA GORA MONASTERY, CZESTOCHOWA, POLAND

    Poland's Roman Catholic Primate, Cardinal Jozef Glemp, has accused organisation in West Germany of fomenting discord by supporting German minorities in Poland. Cardinal Glemp was speaking at an open Mass (August 15). 200,000 pilgrims gathered at Czestochowa's Jasna Gora Monastery, home of the shrine of the Black madonna, Poland's patron saint. The Polish primate appealed to young Poles who regard themselves as ethnic Germans to remain in Poland and resist what he called the lure of comfort and pleasure in the West. During his address, Cardinal Glemp stressed that relations between the Polish and West German Catholic churches are good. He added that Polish church leaders admired the work of West German missionaries in Africa and Latin America, but were concerned by the bitterness inspired by other German sources. Although Cardinal Glemp did not elaborate, he was thought to be referring to West German organisations representing Germans expelled from territory which became part of Western Poland when new frontiers between the two countries were established at the end of the Second World War. West German organisations have recently angered Polish authorities by accusing them of preventing thousands of ethnic Germans still in Poland from leaving for the West. Banners of the banned Solidarity trade union were prominent among the congregation, which included pilgrims from 15 countries from as far away as Japan, Austria and the United States.
