Hailing her "radiant holiness," Pope John Paul II beatified a maverick 19th-Century nun here Thursday and made plain--yet again--that there can never be female priests in the church he commands. Nearing the end of a grueling four-nation Asian swing, the 74-year-old pontiff seemed weary as he dragged his right leg behind him in a round of morning ceremonies and at the long afternoon beatification at a sodden city racetrack.

The 3:30 p.m. whistle shrieked across the desert as a grimy elevator cage rumbled up from cold darkness half a mile underground. But it was more than another shift change at one of Australia's richest and most fabled gold mines. After 98 years, the old Lake View mine was closing.

There stood George Bush the sportsman, sharing a laugh with a new Aussie friend about a subject that both like best. But Bush, the politician, wound up the chat with a word of caution.
