Humiliation of Archbishop Wielgus

You have probably heard about the resignation of Archbishop Wielgus. This video shows the dramatic scenes in St John's Cathedral, Warsaw. (If you don't speak Polish, move the video on to about 2'30" for the shots from the Cathedral.)



Wielgus reads his statement [correction:] as people say "No, please don't go!" According to the Wikipedia article on Wielgus, he said after "deep reflection and consideration of [his] personal situation" that he had decided to put his office "in the hands of the Holy Father."

If you watch for a further minute or so further, you see Cardinal Glemp reading out something which attracts applause.

Polish speakers especially welcome in the combox to enlighten us further.
