The Cardinal said:
We are all thinking and praying for the Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, at this time. As far as we can tell, he is approaching the last days or hours of his long pontificate. It is not only my prayers and those of Catholics which are being offered, but those of fellow Christians and countless others who have grown to respect and admire this man, who has been in so many ways a witness and extraordinarily important moral voice for the world.
