CARDINAL O'CONNOR MAKES "FAREWELL TOUR" OF VATICAN

    VATICAN (CWNews.com) - Cardinal John O'Connor of New York came to the Vatican today for a "farewell tour" according to a report in The Associated Press.

    The cardinal turned 80 last month and is recovering from brain surgery last August to remove a tumor. He has already served five years past the mandatory retirement age of 75 and is preparing to leave his office permanently, pending appointment of a successor by Pope John Paul II.

    "It's a personal trip to say thanks and goodbye," his secretary, Monsignor Gregory Mustaciuolo, told The Associated Press. He said the cardinal wanted to thank the Holy Father "for all he has done for him" and bid farewell to other Vatican officials. He said the cardinal will return to New York either Friday or Saturday.
