BERLIN, Sept. 30 — Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the head of the Vatican body which oversees doctrinal matters, was quoted on Tuesday as saying Pope John Paul was in very poor health and the faithful should pray for him.
“HE IS IN a very bad way,” Ratzinger told Germany’s Bunte magazine in an interview. “We should pray for the pope.”
Ratzinger, who heads the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, told the magazine that the 83-year-old pope had taken on too much, but he was unable to stop him.
83 years old and suffering from parkinson's disease. God love him.
we're going to miss this pope more than many others...
