Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini: Funeral services held in Milan, Italy

On Monday afternoon, funeral services were held for Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, at Milan's Cathedral. He served as that city's archbishop for almost 23 years, before passing away last Friday at the age of 85. Since his death, roughly 200,000 people have visited his coffin to pay their respects.

The current Archbishop of Milan, Cardinal Angelo Scola, presided over the funeral of his predecessor, Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, who passed away after a long fight with Parkinson's disease.
