Update on the Pope

by Steve Ray on February 6, 2005

“Pope John Paul was hospitalized in the evening of February 1 with severe breathing difficulties. After emergency therapy his condition stabilized, and Navarro-Valls has said that there is now “no reason for alarm” about his immediate condition. The Vatican spokesman said that the Pontiff would probably be hospitalized for “about a week.” He has indicated that the next bulletin about the Pope’s medical condition will be issued on Monday.”  (Catholic World News)
