It includes the President of the Polish Bishops’ Conference – Archbishop Stanisław Gądecki, the Primate of Poland – Archbishop Wojciech Polak, and the Metropolitan Archbishop of Lublin – Archbishop Stanisław Budzik. The purpose of the visit is to express the spiritual unity of the Church in Poland with all those who suffer as a result of the ongoing war in the country.
