Hi,  guys!

I want to have my CCD (religious education) class write letters of condolences for the Pope,
John Paul II.

  • Where should they be sent?

Hi, guys —

I would like to send a condolence card to the Vatican.

  • Who would I address the card to?

There is a cardinal who is in charge now, but I don't know his name.

Maybe I could address it to him. I also speak Spanish, so maybe it would be more appropriate
if the card was sent in Spanish.

I look forward to your response.
