Friday, April 1, 2005. Pope John Paul II suffered heart failure during treatment for a urinary tract infection and was in "very serious'' condition on Friday, the Vatican said. It denied an Italian news report that the pope was in a coma.
VATICAN CITY - Pope John Paul II is in grave condition, the Vatican said Friday, but it said he is lucid and spent the morning celebrating Mass and receiving some top aides.

Papal spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls, at one point breaking into tears, told reporters that the 84-year-old pope was "informed of the gravity of his situation" and decided to remain in his apartment overlooking St. Peter's Square.

The pope seems to be on deaths' door so to speak. He is a great man who has accomplished great things. I know he will be in all our prayers. God bless Pope John Paul II.
