    Background: POPE PAUL HAS COMPLETED HIS FIRST YEAR IN OFFICE. HE CELEBRATED THE FIRST ANNIVERSARY OF HIS CORONATION BY ATTENDING YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) A SOLEMN MASS IN ST. PETER'S BASILICA IN THE VATICAN.

    HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE, INCLUDING MANY TOURISTS, CROWDED ST. PETER'S SQUARE TO SEE THE POPE CARRIED IN PONTIFICAL PROCESSION INTO THE BASILICA.

    FOR THE SERVICE, CARDINAL EUGENE TISSERANT, THE FRENCH DEAN OF THE COLLEGE O CARDINALS, OFFICIATED AT THE MAIN ALTAR ABOVE ST. PETER'S TOMB. MANY OTHER CARDINALS PAID HOMAGE.

    LOOKING BACK OVER THE PAST YEAR, VATICAN PRELATES FEEL THAT POPE PAUL HAS BEEN LEADING TOO BUSY A LIFE. AS CARDINAL TISSERANT SAID IN AN ADDRESS TO THE POPE: "THE TASKS OF YEAR HOLINESS ARE INCREASING IN A PRE-OCCUPYING MANNER."
    AT THE SAME TIME, IT IS STATED THAT THE POPE IS IN GOOD HEALTH AND THERE IS NO QUESTION OF HIM BEING ORDERED TO REST. HOWEVER, HE IS EXPECTED TO REDUCE HIS ENGAGEMENTS WHEN HE GOES TO HIS SUMMER RETREAT, PROBABLY NEXT WEEK.

    DURING THE FIRST YEAR OF HIS PONTIFICATE, POPE PAUL HAS WRITTEN AND DELIVERED MORE THAN 300 SPEECHES AND BROADCASTS, AND MADE 50 VISITS OUTSIDE THE WALLS OF THE VATICAN CITY, INCLUDING HIS HISTORIC PILGRIMAGE TO THE HOLY LAND EARLY THIS YEAR.
