Hundreds of thousands of people are hearing Pope Benedict the sixteenth celebrate an open-air mass in the Polish capital Warsaw. It's the Pope's first major public appearance on the second day of his tour of this deeply Catholic nation.

This report from Adam Easton:

Despite pouring rain, Warsaw's Pilsudski Square was packed full for the service. Those without tickets crammed into a nearby park. People had been given the day off work to hear the Pope deliver his first mass in Poland.

The crowd broke into applause after he referred in Polish to the historic prayer of his predecessor John Paul. In the same square in 1979 Pope John Paul asked the Holy Spirit to descend and change the face of the land. His prayer inspired the nation to stand up against Communist rule.

Pope Benedict said those words had helped people in many countries regain their freedom. During his visit he has repeatedly paid homage to John Paul, who is already considered as a saint by many in his homeland.
