Pope John Paul II on Monday bade an emotional welcome to leaders of a Ukrainian church "emerging from the catacombs" and urged them to make peace with the rival Russian Orthodox Church as fruit of the peaceful revolution sweeping through the Soviet Union. The Pope met and chatted individually for an hour with 10 bishops who had come from the Ukraine, where they had preserved their faith outside the law, heading a church driven underground by dictator Josef Stalin in 1946.
