Pope in Serious Condition

by Steve Ray on April 1, 2005

The Pope has just been moved to the hospital inside the Vatican. His apartment lights are out and St. Peter’s Square and streets around the Vatican have been blocked off.

Fox News announced that the Pope’s blood pressure had dropped very low, he has a urinary tract infection and a high fever — along with his feeding tube. It has also been reported that the Pope was given the anointing of the sick (which Fox News referred to as “Last Rites“). There are rumors from Rome that he may not make it through the night — but then rumors are just that, rumors.

May Our Lord bless His faithful servant him grace, strength and a face like flint toward heaven. May the will of God be done.

As of 7:30 PM EST he is listed in stable condition and responding to the antibiotics.
