In a major changing of the guard at the Vatican, Cardinal Agostino Casaroli, a patient and polyglot prelate who became one of the world's most traveled diplomats, retired Saturday as secretary of state. Pope John Paul II immediately named another Italian, Archbishop Angelo Sodano, who had been Casaroli's deputy, as his successor, thereby assuring continuity of Vatican foreign policy and preserving geopolitical balance in the Curia.

Although Press Secretary Ari Fleischer did not elaborate, White House officials emphasized that the president spoke about the church's situation in America but did not necessarily address in specific the question of priests and sexual abuse of children.
