Vatican Continued from page 4 through curia] offices. The Vatican press office is sensitive to all this. During the pope's four-week hospital stay last spring, the Vatican made public a humorous exchange between the pontiff and his surgeon. The pope reportedly told the doctor that together they had to mend his leg, be- cause "there is no place for a retired pope." The remark was seen by many as a Vatican ef- fort to truncate any such spec- ulation as quickly as possible. In recent remarks about aging, the pope offered some insight into how he may be ap- proaching his own status as a "senior citizen." Particularly in the church, he said, the older person can still make impor- tant contributions "even when advancing age imposes the re- duction or suspension" of phys- ical activities. "We should remember, as old people, that with health prob- lems and the decline of our physical strength, we are par- ticularly associated with Christ in his passion and on the cross," he said. Indeed, the pope has always felt a special closeness with the sick and suffering. Ironically, his recent mobility problems have made it more difficult for him to mingle with the sick and show them that extra at- tention. At the Sept. 21 audience, the group of sick and disabled sat in the front rows, many in wheelchairs. But separating them from the pope were 10 polished marble steps, which the pope could not handle. The sick eventually were hauled up the steps -- wheelchairs and all -- so they could greet the pope. Before leaving the hall that day, the pope turned back to acknowledge one final burst of applause. With a spotlight on him, he raised one hand in salute, then held up his cane and shook it m as if he'd like to throw it away K of C football league play The following information ball and ran 24 yards was submitted for publication touchdown, and Jake by Thomas J.
