In a matter of months, weeks or even days, a new bishop could be appointed to take charge of America's oldest Roman Catholic archdiocese. Cardinal William H. Keeler submitted his resignation letter to the Vatican more than a year ago - a church requirement once he passed his 75th birthday - allowing Pope Benedict XVI to pick a new archbishop for Baltimore. Speculation among Vatican observers suggests that a decision could come sooner rather than later, as the pope has the opportunity to put his imprint on both the American Catholic Church and the College of Cardinals that will someday pick his replacement.

VATICAN CITY - Pope John Paul II will take a secret to the grave when he is buried tomorrow: the identity of the last cardinal he named. The mystery stems from the rare papal practice of naming cardinals in pectore, or "close to the heart." Popes have usually done this to honor a prelate's service in a country where the Roman Catholic Church is persecuted without further straining the Holy See's relations with that nation or exposing the prelate to harassment. Sometimes even the cardinal in question is unaware of his honor.

ARCHBISHOP William Keeler's recent elevation to cardinal has been characterized in the media as evidence of Pope John Paul II's attempt to keep the Roman Catholic Church moving in a conservative direction -- even after his death.While many of the 30 new cardinals may be considered conservative, I don't interpret their appointments as simply a move to create a solidly conservative College of Cardinals.Just as President Clinton wanted his cabinet to look like America, I believe Pope John Paul II wants the cardinals to reflect what the church looks like today.

Here are excerpts from Pope John Paul II's address, which was delivered in Latin, at the consistory yesterday.Venerable Brothers, through today's celebration you become members in full right of the Church of Rome, of which the Successor of Peter is the Bishop. From the first millennium of its history the Church of Rome comprised: the Suburbicarian Dioceses entrusted to bishops; the parishes for which priests were responsible; and the "diaconiae" in which, in accordance with an ancient apostolic tradition, deacons carried out their liturgical and social tasks.

Text of the homily read, in Italian, by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, dean of the College of Cardinals, during the funeral Mass of Pope John Paul II. Translation provided by the Vatican: Follow me." The Risen Lord says these words to Peter. They are his last words to this disciple, chosen to shepherd his flock. "Follow me" - this lapidary saying of Christ can be taken as the key to understanding the message which comes to us from the life of our late beloved Pope John Paul II. Today we bury his remains in the earth as a seed of immortality - our hearts are full of sadness, yet at the same time of joyful hope and profound gratitude.

VATICAN CITY -- Draped in crimson vestments, Pope JOhn Paul II lay in state yesterday, his head covered with a white bishop's miter, as church and Italian political leaders bowed before him in prayer. After a morning Mass attended by more than 100,000 worshipers in St. Peter's Square, he lay in the Apostolic Palace's Clementine Hall, a large 17th-century room covered by frescoes and near the papal apartment, where he died Saturday. His death certificate, released yesterday, listed septic shock and heart failure as the causes of death and acknowledged the pontiff's long battle with Parkinson's disease.

Like the ceremonial formalities that surrounded Pope John Paul II in life, his death has set in motion an elaborate choreography of centuries-old ritual. The formal process of papal succession is set in motion by Cardinal Eduardo Martinez Somalo, a 77-year-old veteran of the Vatican curia who serves as the camerlengo, or papal chamberlain. He will be responsible for the administration of the Vatican and the worldwide Roman Catholic Church during this period, called the interregnum, which will last until the College of Cardinals chooses a new pope.

VATICAN CITY - Pope John Paul II appointed 31 new cardinals yesterday, enlarging the body that will choose his successor and further solidifying his conservative influence on the Roman Catholic Church and its powerful hierarchy. Pope John Paul, 83 and in poor health, will elevate the new cardinals, bestowing upon them their trademark scarlet birettas, Oct. 21 in a ceremony known as a consistory. It will wrap up a week of celebrations marking the pontiff's 25 years in office, one of the longest reigns in modern history.

IF THE present bishop of Rome -- one of the longest reigning popes -- survives until his 80th birthday on May 18, 2000, it is not unthinkable that he might resign.In fact, the latest Newsweek magazine quotes John Paul II, in his 21st year as pope and in fragile health, as saying that after 2000, all Vatican decisions will be for someone else.So, Vatican watchers are asking: Who will be the next pope?Some Vatican insiders say that, for many reasons, the next pontiff may be from Africa.Feeding such speculation was a recent Wall Street Journal front-page article about Francis Arinze, a 66-year-old Nigerian cardinal.

The College of Cardinals that Baltimore's William H. Keeler will be initiated into Saturday is perhaps the world's most enduring men's club.It has evolved from a feuding cadre of medieval princes to a kind of modern-day board of directors for the nearly 1 billion-member Roman Catholic Church.Its sphere of power -- matters of the spirit that can bear directly on geopolitics -- is so vast that even Wall Street analysts are quietly calling Catholic scholars for explanations of exactly how the college works and how the new faces may affect that process.
