Cardinal Jacques Martin, a close aide to Pope John Paul II who organized many of the pope's trips and traveled with him, died yesterday. He was 84. Cardinal Martin had been suffering heart trouble and died of a heart attack, the Vatican said. Born in Amiens, France, he worked in the Vatican's department of state from 1934 to 1969. That year, he was appointed head of the papal household, the department in charge of the pope's daily affairs. In that job, he organized the trips of John Paul, who traveled frequently in those years. In 1986 the pope named him an archbishop and prefect emeritus of the papal household.
