Polish faithful light thousands of candles during a vigil for the late Pope John Paul II in front of Krakow Bishop's Palace April 4, 2005. Thousands of grieving Poles struggled on Monday to find spare seats in trains, planes and buses headed for Rome to take part in the funeral of their country's greatest son, Pope John Paul. The Pontiff is revered in Poland for playing a role in helping to overthrow communism and help it rejoin the European mainstream after half a century of domination from Moscow.
