Pope's Will Released

So far, the complete text is only available in Italian and Polish. AP has translated some of it into English.


  • The will mentions only two living people: his personal secretary and the chief rabbi of Rome who welcomed him to Rome's synagogue in 1986.
  • On the decision of where to be buried –- he leaves that up to the College of Cardinals and Bishops of Poland– only stipulating that he should be buried in the earth and not in a tomb.
  • It suggests the Pope considered resigning in 2000 due to his health problems.
