Pope has Parkinson's

By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | May 17, 2003

OK, that's not exactly news although this is the first time anyone at the Vatican has officially admitted it.

Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re confirmed that the Pope has Parkinson's to a reporter in a story on the Pope's 83rd birthday tomorrow. CWN should have more on this story on Monday as part of our regular news schedule.
