Pope John Paul II arrives at the Basilica of Guadalupe in Mexico City
in this Aug. 1, 2002 file picture. The ailing 82-year old pontiff has
canceled his January 2003 journey to the Philippines, a church
official said Monday Aug. 26, 2002. The pontiff was considering a trip
to attend the World Meeting of Families, an international religious
conference held every three years. The 2003 session will be held
Jan. 22-26 in Manila, the first time that Asia has hosted the event.
