>> Pope Francis has arrived In Poland and as now become customary with his overseas trips, the main part of the news at least on the first day of the trip was what he told us on the plane. I'm Phil Colella, Reuters correspondent and I'm speaking to you from Krakow, Poland, which is one of the world most catholic countries.

Well, this trip is overshadowed by the brutal killing of the French priest. And he said that the string of recent attacks in Europe, including the brutal killing of this priest in the French Church in the small town, means that the world is at war. He made clear that he did not want his words to be misinterpreted, and he said he was not talking about a war of religion, he said that all religions want peace.

A war of money in his words. Coming to Poland for any Pope is a very, very hard task indeed. The late Pope John Paul who died in 2005 after a reign of nearly three decades is revered, he has cult-like status here. In fact, he is a Saint of the Church, so any Pope coming here will have a hard time filling those shoes.

The Polish Episcopate, as well as the current Polish Government is conservatives, more in line with the teachings on moral issues, on sexual morality, that was taught by John Paul. The Polish Episcopate does not see eye to eye with him on that. There's a closed door meeting which probably means that he's going to be very, very frank with them and asking them to get in line with his more open teachings.
