POPE JOHN PAUL II BREATHING ON HIS OWN

The Associated Press reports that the Pontiff "is breathing on his own" and "spent a restful night at Rome's Gemelli Polyclinic." He's also reported to have a "good appetite." I'm encouraged by this news, as must be the world's 1.1 million Catholics, and all who revere this special man. The next medical bulletin is not to be issued until next Monday unless, of course, Pope John Paul II should take a turn for the worse. I pray that's not the case.
