Recovering Pope to Remain in Hospital

From CWNews.com:

Vatican, Feb. 07 (CWNews.com) - Pope John Paul II (bio - news) no longer has a fever, and a Vatican bulletin on February 7 indicated that his recovery was continuing without incident, but he will remain in the Gemelli Hospital for several more days "for obvious precautionary reasons."

In his Monday statement on the Pope's condition, Vatican spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls said that the Holy Father is "eating regularly and sat in an armchair for a few hours." He added that the Pontiff is concelebrating Mass-- presumably from his bed-- each day.

Despite his illness, John Paul II has evidently retained his self-deprecating sense of humor. Navarro-Valls told reporters that the Pope is reading the newspapers regularly; he said that the Pontiff wanted to see "how my illness is going."

Read the rest.
