Pope John Paul II's body preparation after death
Question from Dave on 4/16/2005:
United States

Why was the Pope not embalmed?

Answered on 4/17/2005:

We were not told. It could have been his preference. It could have been that unlike in the United States in other countries they do not generally embalm. We only know the fact: he was not embalmed.
