Pope speaks in support of Ukraine

From CNN:


At the Vatican, Pope John Paul II told Ukrainian pilgrims he was praying for their country in a "special way."

"My most dear ones, I assure you and all the Ukrainian people that in these days, I am praying in a special way for your beloved homeland," the pontiff said Wednesday.

As soon as John Paul started speaking in Ukrainian, about 100 pilgrims from the country stood up and started singing a patriotic song and waving blue-and-yellow Ukrainian flags and orange banners.
