I think back to Christmas Mass at St Peter's and telling my wife he looked frail on TV. I passed it off then, but apparently his health is failing.
He was probably the least "public" pope we've had in awhile and it seems like he was the least traveled IMHO.
I hope they elect a slightly younger man this time - one who is steeped in tradition and is willing to take a hard stance against priestly pedophilia- especially by American priests, and the "cover-up" Bishops and Cardinals.
