Nearly 10,000 worshipers gave a farewell round of applause Tuesday to Pope John Paul II as he struggled with increasing signs of infirmity at the end of a five-day journey to India and Georgia. Georgian President Eduard A. Shevardnadze led the accolade, rising from his seat and striding to the altar as the Roman Catholic Mass concluded. The pope stood to greet Shevardnadze, who kissed his left cheek, picked up a microphone and turned to the crowd.

Pope John Paul II arrived in Georgia on Monday calling for "new bridges" between the long-estranged Eastern and Western branches of Christianity. But he met a wall of silence from the country's Orthodox Christian patriarch. The patriarch, Ilia II, refused to be drawn into an open discussion of Christian unity. In three joint appearances, he addressed the Roman Catholic leader only as a statesman, asking his help in resolving Georgia's worldly problems.
