Rain splashes down on Saint Peter's Square at the Vatican September 24,
2003. Pope John Paul II took the rare step of cancelling his weekly
general audience on Wednesday in the face of growing concern over his
health, but the Vatican insists that only a minor intestinal problem is
to blame. Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Angelo Sodano read the
Pope's address at the audience. REUTERS/Max Rossi
