Cardinal Mejia, who is 90 years old, is archivist and librarian emeritus of the Holy Roman Church. The clinic's patients and personnel were very surprised by the encounter with the new pontiff and greeted him with warm applause. The Pope, in his address to the College of Cardinals yesterday in the Clementine Hall, informed them of the heart attack that the cardinal had suffered.
