Last Days Pope John Paul II?

The pope is in the hospital for the 3rd time this month. He has a urinary tract infection, and he was given sacrament of the annointing of the sick (last rites). One doctors quote was this:

"His body has come to a standstill," said Dr. Zab Mosenifar, who treats elderly patients at the intensive care unit at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. "Usually, these people go in a downhill course."

This doesn't necessarily mean he will die. He is responding to antibiotics, but his condition is worsening.

    Yup

    I think so

    People who have to create conspiracy and hate threads to further a cause lacks in intellectual comprehension of diversity.

    Last time he made a public appearance they had to feed him through a tube.

    Doesn't look very good.

    i do feel it is sad someone who made the church so much better then it was even in world war two. with platform of non involvment, and some priests even turned in resistance fighters against musalini.

    and much better then their silent endorsement of the slave trade.

    i feel pope john paul has made the catholic church a good summaritan outgoing organization that helps the world. and i feel he is mostly responsible for this. so i feel this is a great man passing away.

    When i strated hearing about him bieng sick it really made me sad
    I mean this man is the head of the church and well i am Catholic so in a way he is like my president of religion
    and well if he goes
    who knows who will take his place

    lets hope god saves this man

    For atleast some more years

    unless he is in pain
    then in that case, i think people in pain should well not have to be in pain any more

    God Bless you Pope John Paul II!::::28::

    I am also Catholic, it is really sad to see such a great man die. He really helped the church survive in the 20th century through reform. Unlike figure heads of countries and organizations- I really think he talks the talk and walks the walk.

    Sigh.


    First Johnnie Cochran, Then Mitch Hedburg, and now possibly the Pope. What a depressing week.

    It seems like it may be, but who would be the new pope if he did die ::::03:: It wouldnt be the same, because "Da freakin pope"(if you have seen family guy) is a one of a kind ::::08::

    Update:

    The pope only has hours to live. He is in grave condition and has now suffered heart failure.
