Wasn't JPII quite far gone dementia-wise by the time he passed? That does not appear to be a reason for leaving this job.
I'm not sure. I know he had parkinson's.

They've been saying since I posted earlier that it really might be the HBO documentary that pushed him into retirement. That's just speculation though.
