From the ramparts of the 600-year old Wawel Cathedral in Krakow, Poland, Karol Cardinal Wojtyla greets crowds in this July 9, 1967 file photo, after he recently returned from Rome when he was elevated to cardinal by Pope Paul VI. Pope John Paul II, the Polish pontiff who led the Roman Catholic Church for more than a quarter century and became history's most-traveled pope, died Saturday night, April 2, 2005, in his Vatican apartment.
