FILE - In this Tuesday, June 8, 1999 file photo, Pope John Paul II waves to the faithful as he arrives to celebrate Mass at the bank of Elk River in Elk, Poland. Thousands of Poles are making plans to travel to Rome for the May 1, 2011 beatification of their beloved countryman, Pope John Paul II, but some have already left, on foot. Two men on Thursday March 10, 2011 began the 900-mile (1,500 kilometer) journey from Olbrachcice Wielkie, in southwestern Poland, planning to walk down Europe's roads and across fields and counting on the support and hospitality of people they meet on the way.
