VATICAN DOWNPLAYS SMALL CUT ON POPE'S FOREHEAD

    VATICAN (CWNews.com) -- Vatican officials told reporters on March 19 that a small cut on the forehead of Pope John Paul II was "no reason for concern."

    The Pope appeared at his regular Sunday audience with a small but distinct cut on the side of his forehead. The Vatican did not disclose how the Pontiff injured himself, but said that the damage was minor.

    Pope John Paul cut his head in roughly the same place-- and more seriously- - during his trip to Poland in June 1999. That injury was the result of a fall. Speaking off the record, Vatican officials said that on this occasion the Pope had not fallen; they did not provide any other details on what had happened.
