VATICAN CITY, JUN 30, 2005 (VIS) - At noon today, the Pope received Cardinal Angelo Sodano, dean of the College of Cardinals, and the 32 metropolitan archbishops who yesterday received the pallium, accompanied by members of their family.

  The Holy Father greeted each of the new metropolitan archbishops individually, and assured them: "I remain united to you with affection and prayer; at the same time I ask you to continue to walk together, united by the same feelings of harmony and of love for Christ and His Church."

  Turning to Cardinal Sodano, Benedict XVI thanked him for "the collaboration given over many years to Peter's Successor, I extend my thoughts to all the members of the College of Cardinals, with gratitude for the support and prayer with which they accompany my service as pastor of the universal Church."

  Speaking to Archbishop Stanislaw Dziwisz, the new metropolitan archbishop of Krakow, Poland, the Pope thanked him "for all you have done for John Paul II, and for me personally."
