    Pope John Paul name Polish Primate Jozef Glemp a Cardinal on January 5, 1983, almost 18 months after he became head of the church in the Pontiff's homeland. The Pope made the announcement at his weekly audience and said 17 other bishops from all five continents would be installed as cardinals. Fifty-three-year-old Archbishop Glemp has led the Catholic Church through months of negotiations and compromise with the Communist Government in Poland since he succeeded the late Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski in July 1981. Before he was appointed, Archbishop Glemp, from the northern Polish diocese of Warmia, was a close associate of Cardinal Wyszynski and had once served as his private secretary. Archbishop Glemp took up his office as Primate of all Poland on September 13, 1981, at the high point of the independent trade union Solidarity, and he told the congregation at his investiture ceremony at the historic 10th century cathedral at Gniezno, Poland, that his people were tired of economic hardship. After General Jaruzelski's Government imposed martial law in Poland in December 1981, Archbishop Glemp consistently appealed for the release of all internees, the restoration of civil rights and the recognition of the free trade union Solidarity. In April 1982, he travelled to the Vatican to brief the Pope on his discussions with General Jaruzelski about the internal situation in Poland. The Pope gave full backing to the Archbishop's calls for an end to martial law, which was lifted on December 30, 1982, and for his urging for peace and calm in Poland. In June 1982, Archbishop Glemp paid tribute to his predecessor Cardinal Wyszynski when he led a commemorative service at St. John's chapel in Warsaw. When he became primate, Glemp tried to mediate between the Polish authorities and the free trade union, Solidarity, led by Lech Walesa. He also stressed his and the church's concern for human rights in his messages from the pulpit.
