<i> United Press International</i>

Archbishop Eugene A. Marino, the nation’s highest-ranking black Roman Catholic clergyman, is suffering from physical problems and psychological stresses that could require he step down, a spokesman said Sunday.

Marino, 56, was in New York for meetings last month when he began suffering chest pains, the Rev. Peter Dora said. He remains at a retreat center in New York, where he is being treated by two physicians and a psychiatrist, the spokesman for the Atlanta archdiocese said.
