Crowded church, plain casket for Wesolowski funeral

Nuns recite rosary ahead of mass by Monsignor Krajewski

(ANSA) - Vatican City, August 31 - The Vatican Governorate chapel was crowded with mourners on Monday for the funeral of former Polish archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, who died at the weekend before a date could be set for his trial on paedophile charges.
    The funeral mass was preceded by nuns who recited the rosary and celebrated by Polish archbishop Monsignor Konrad Krajewski, the current Papal Almoner, who chose to forgo a homily in favor of a nearly 10-minute period of silence.
