WARSAW, Poland - Amid calls for him to step aside, Warsaw's incoming archbishop admitted Friday he had cooperated with the Communist-era secret police and said he was leaving his fate in the hands of Pope Benedict XVI.

Archbishop Stanislaw Wielgus, who is to have his installation ceremony Sunday, expressed regret for an act that he acknowledged "harmed the church."

He also said he has informed Benedict of this chapter in his life, which he said included a promise to collaborate but never resulted in informing on anyone.

"Before you today, I confess to the mistake committed by me years ago, just as I have confessed to the Holy Father," Wielgus said in an open letter to Poland's Roman Catholic clergy and believers.
