Polish primate would visit Moscow if he were invited

Jozef Cardinal Glemp, the Polish Roman Catholic primate, said Monday he would accept an invitation from the Russian Orthodox Church to visit Moscow but that no formal invitation had been received. Cardinal Glemp, who spoke to journalists on arrival in Rome to visit Pope John Paul II, was commenting on reports that Patriarch Pimen of the Russian Orthodox Church planned to invite him later this year. Vatican sources have said the cardinal might ask Moscow to allow him to visit predominantly Roman Catholic Lithuania as part of a trip to the Soviet Union.
