PRELATE'S ILLNESS JEOPARDIZES POPE'S ARMENIA TRIP

          VATICAN (CWNews.com) -- The scheduled visit by Pope John Paul II to Armenia, programmed for July 2-4, may be cancelled because of the illness of the Catholicos Karekin I, the head of the Armenian Apostolic Church.

          The Armenian news agency Snark reported on June 4 that the papal visit had already been put off. But the Vatican did not confirm that story, and the Armenian ambassador to the Holy See told reporters that preparations for the trip are still underway. However, the ambassador did allow that the medical condition of the Catholicos was a matter of concern, and could lead to the cancellation of the trip.
