According to a report by the Canadian Press, many in the “great white north” don’t believe Pope John Paul II should step down despite his health problems.
At Mary Queen of the World Cathedral in Montreal last week, nearly 200 people came to a noon-hour Mass to pray for the well being of the Holy Father.
Many present commented that the decision to resign, heavily speculated in the worldwide press lately, should be left solely to the Pope himself.
“It's not my decision. It would be his. It's between him and God”, commented one parishioner.
