Pope still in serious condition, but not in a Coma, Vatican says

.- During a 10:30 a.m. press briefing, Vatican spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls   announced that Pope John Paul was still in serious condition, but he was not in a coma.

“Nothing has changed since last night,” said Navarro-Valls.

“At  7:30 a.m. there was a compromising moment,” the Vatican spokesman said, but he did not go into details.

“We cannot speak of a coma,” because “sometimes he looks like resting, sometimes he open his eyes,” he added.

“I know you have come to me and for this reason I thank you.” This is a composition of the words mused by the Holy Father during this time, said the spokesman.

“Possibly the Holy Father was thinking of the young people he has met during his long pontificate, and of the people who have come to St. Peter’s square to pray.

The next update on the Pope’s health will be released during Rome’s afternoon.
