Not so fast...
I noticed on Tim Drake's web site that he posted this:
Despite what modern secular journalists might have us believe, Yahoo reports that John Paul II plans to remain Pope until he dies. This report comes from Cardinal Joachim Meisner, and is reportedly based upon a private conversation with the Holy Father.
I would only say, "not so fast," I think that there is a very good chance that Pope John Paul II will retire in August (unless of course he dies before then--God forbid). When Cardinals begin talking about it openly there is something going on in the background and we won't know for sure until it happens. If I'm wrong, I'll remind everyone in August when he returns from Poland.
