Poles honour their Pope

Mourners estimated to number 750,000 have attended a candle-lit mass for the late Pope John Paul II in the Polish city of Krakow.

Thousands of Poles are braving the cold in sleeping bags, keen to get a good place to watch the funeral on giant screens at the Blonia Park in Krakow.

It was there that John Paul II held open-air masses during his papal visits, attracting millions of worshippers.

Now, Poles are gathering to bid a final farewell to the Pope they call their own.

About 1 million Poles have made the pilgrimage to Rome, most making gruelling journeys by train, car or bus.

For those who could not make the trip, the Krakow services were the next best place to be.

May he rest in Holy Piss.......
