 article about Pope John Paul II Near Death

Reports from the Vatican health office state that Pope John Paul II is near death.  His body is failing and doctors have said there is no hope of recovery.

Up to 70,000 people stood vigil in St. Peter's Square well into the night, with some people staying all night to await further reports. They prayed and wept for the 84 year old Pope.  The crowd were so quiet at times that the water fountain in the square could be heard.

A note, reportedly from The Pope said 'I am happy' and asked everyone to pray together with joy.
