      POPE RECOVERING IN GUARDED CONDITION FALLS UNCONSCIOUS

      VATICAN CITY, APR 1, 2005 (VIS) - Last evening at 10.15 p.m., Holy See Press Office Director Joaquin Navarro-Valls released the following declaration to journalists:

      "The Holy Father today developed a high fever caused by a urinary tract infection.

      "Appropriate antibiotic therapy was begun.

      "His clinical condition is being closely monitored by the Vatican medical team that is caring for him."

      At 6.30 a.m. today, Holy See Press Office Director Joaquin Navarro-Valls released another declaration:

      "This morning the Holy Father's health conditions are very serious.

      "Yesterday afternoon, March 31, as already announced, following a confirmed infection of the urinary tract, septic shock set in with cardio-circulatory collapse.

      "The Holy Father was immediately assisted by the medical team on watch in his private apartments.

      "All appropriate therapeutic and cardio-respiratory measures were activated.

      "The Holy Father's wish to remain in his private apartments was respected, where in any case complete and efficient health care can be guaranteed.

      "Late yesterday afternoon, the clinical situation stabilized temporarily, but in later hours it developed negatively.

      "The situation of the Holy Father is being monitored and watched.

      "The Holy Father is conscious, lucid and serene. Yesterday at 7.17 p.m. he received the Viaticum.

      "At 6 a.m. today he concelebrated Mass.

      "The Cardinal Secretary of State and the Holy Father's closest collaborators, united with him in prayer, are following the development of the clinical condition of His Holiness.

      "The Pope is being assisted by his personal physician Dr. Renato Buzzonetti, by two specialists in reanimation, by a cardiologist, by an otorhinolaryngologist, and by two nurses."

      At the start of his press briefing today at 12:30 p.m., Navarro-Valls repeated the previous two bulletins on the Pope's health, adding some new details and answering only a couple of questions. He did announce, however, that the Holy See Press Office would remain open throughout the night.

      He said that, "from the very first moment, the Holy Father was informed of the seriousness of the situation and decided to remain in his own apartment in the Vatican where, furthermore, complete and competent medical assistance is guaranteed. Late yesterday afternoon there was a temporary stabilization of his condition which then, in successive hours, evolved negatively.

      "The Holy Father's situation is carefully monitored. The Holy Father is conscious. At 7:17 last evening he received holy Viaticum. At 6 this morning he wished to concelebrate Mass, naturally from his bed. The Pope, as you know, is assisted by his personal physician, Dr. Renato Buzzonetti, by two specialists in reanimation, by a cardiologist, by an otorhinolaryngologist, and by two nurses.

      Navarro-Valls, himself a medical doctor, repeated that "the Pope is always conscious. This morning at 6 he celebrated Mass. About 7:15, realizing that today is Friday, a day in which he traditionally follows the Stations of the Cross, he asked that the 14 stations be read to him. He followed attentively the reading of the texts and made the sign of the cross at every station.

      "After finishing the stations, he said he wished to recite the Liturgy of Hours and asked specifically that the Third Hour be read to him.

      "I saw that this morning he received several of his collaborators: Cardinal Angelo Sodano, secretary of State; Archbishop Leonardo Sandri, substitute for General Affairs, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the dean of the College of Cardinals, Archbishop Giovanni Lajolo, secretary for Relations with States, and Archbishop Paolo Sardi, vice chamberlain (camerlengo ).

      "The situation now is stationary. The conditions of notable seriousness remain.

      "The biological parameters are unsettled. His blood pressure is unstable.

      "The Pope continues to remain lucid, fully aware and, I must say, very serene.

      "Several minutes ago he asked that some passages from Sacred Scriptures be read to him, and he attentively is following this reading."

      The Pope asked aides to to assist him in lectio by reading aloud the New Testament passage describing the final stage of the Passion of Christ, His crucifixion and death, and His burial, Navarro-Valls said. The lectio described how Joseph of Arimathea took down Christ's body from the cross, wrapped Him in a linen shroud and placed in his [Joseph's] newly cut tomb.

      Navarro-Valls said the Holy Father followed attentively and made the sign of the cross.

      Responding to a journalist's question, Navarro-Valls said that "the Holy Father, when informed of the reality of the situation, asked if it was strictly necessary to return to the hospital and he was assured that complete medical care could be guaranteed in the Vatican."

      Asked about his own personal reaction to events, Navarro-Valls said he was sure "there is no interest in my feelings at this time. However, this is an image that you have never seen here," adding: "The Pope is lucid and extraordinarily serene."

      Joaquin Navarro-Valls told reporters the Holy Father, who was being treated at the Vatican, was "informed of the gravity of his situation" and is currently convalescing in his apartment overlooking St. Peter's Square.

      "The Vatican medical team consisting of the Pope's personal physician, two intensive care doctors, a cardiologist, an ear, nose and throat specialist and two nurses, all provide the appropriate and necessary therapeutic provisions and cardio-respiratory assistance," the Holy See said.

      Cardinal Ruini said he visited the Pope early this morning and found him "profoundly serene and fully lucid."

      "I prayed with him for a moment which profoundly moved me. Certainly the Pope has completely left himself in God's hands. I invite all Romans and Italians to intensify prayers for him in this moment," Cardinal Ruini told private television station TG5.

      This just in: Cardinal Ruini has just reported moments ago that the Holy Father has lost consciousness. "The Pope is facing the greatest challenge of his life with great serenity and abandonment." Cardinal Ruini said.

      CARDINAL RUINI TO SAY MASS FOR POPE IN ST. JOHN LATERAN

      VATICAN CITY, APR 1, 2005 (VIS) - Cardinal Camillo Ruini, vicar general of His Holiness for the diocese of Rome and president of the Italian Episcopal Conference, said in a communique today that, "Due to the worsening condition of the Holy Father, I invite all Romans and all Italians to intensify their prayers for him. We wish to be near him in this hour with that same loving closeness with which John Paul II has accompanied for us these nearly 27 years.

      "This evening at 7, we will celebrate Mass for the Pope in St. John Lateran Basilica. I ask all parish communities, all religious in Rome to pray for the Holy Father, in churches and in individual families."

      TERRY SCHIAVO: RIGHTFUL DISTRESS FOR A LIFE INTERRUPTED

      VATICAN CITY, APR 1, 2005 (VIS) - Last evening at 7:20, Holy See Press Office Director Joaquin Navarro-Valls made the following statement about the death in the United States of Terry Schiavo, the Florida women who had been in a so-called persistent vegetative state for 15 years:

      "The circumstances surrounding the death of Mrs. Terry Schiavo have rightly upset consciences. A life was interrupted. Death was arbitrarily anticipated, because feeding a person can never be considered as drastic therapy.

      "There is no doubt that there can be no exceptions to the principle of the sacredness of life, from conception to its natural end. In addition to being a principle of Christian ethics, this has also been a principle of human civilization.

      "It is to be hoped that, because of this dramatic experience, a greater awareness of human dignity will mature in public opinion and that this will lead to greater defense of life, even on a legal level."



      * * *


      TERRI SCHIAVO MURDERED IN FLORIDA

      The case of Terri Schiavo is very clear according to the Catholic faith, she was murdered.

      Legalized murder, that is, from a Catholic point of view of faith and morals, is not something new in the United States. The Terri Schiavo case only helps to bring this out in bold relief. The United States Supreme Court has legalized abortion for decades.

      The principle on which the Florida State Court has ruled is that she is "brain damaged" and can neither speak nor feed herself. However, this is also true for newly born infants, victims of severe stroke, quadriplegics, victims of severe accidents or injuries (including soldiers during war), and people suffering from acute depression syndrome. Following the logic of the Florida State Court anyone classified in these traumatic medical conditions would also be candidates for death by starvation, a form of execution used by the Nazi's in concentration camps during WWII.

      Some will say that this characterization of the event is propaganda. That the Florida State Court ruled in an isolated case based on the appeal of the spouse. No matter how it is argued the conclusion is the court has agreed to what has been hyped in the press as "mercy killing." Yet, the Catholic position is that mercy has no part of this decision, but rather, it is clearly a case of legally sanctioned murder.

      A government and legal system is only good and effective, in the Catholic sense, when it defends the weakest and most helpless member of its society.

      In the motion picture of 1992 "A Few Good Men" about two United States Marines who were on trial for the murder of one of their peers (Private Santiago), the moral of the story was that they were guilty for failing to defend Private Santiago, a man who was weak and helpless and needed their defense and protection.

      The two accused marines said they were only acting under orders. They were ordered by their commanding officer to give Private Santiago a "code red", a form of unofficial military punishment of harsh treatment that is supposed to bring the aberrant soldier back into conformity and performance. It is not intended to cause death. Private Santiago's death in this case was an unfortunate accident resulting from his medical condition unknown at the time.

      This film like an Aesop fable paints a portrait of a moral issue. Terri Schiavo like Private Santiago should have been defended and protected rather than brutally tortured and executed. Unfortunately, Terri Schiavo's death was no accident but a direct order.

      Terri Schiavo was medically classified as "brain damaged" something the news media played to the hilt. There are many people who are brain damaged who are functional. What the news media is attempting to do is twist "brain damaged" to mean "brain dead" something all together different having a different legal meaning.

      The Holy Father has often declared that the current culture of the world is "the culture of death". When people no longer acknowledge the sacredness of life, when human beings are expendable for the sake of convenience, it promotes death. But "the culture of death" has deeper meaning than this. It also means "spiritual death" when people no longer acknowledge God as the Supreme Being who gives life, grace and is the only one who has the right to take life away.

      It is our moral duty as Catholics to witness to the Catholic faith. It does no one any good to condemn anyone else in heated debates sparked by emotion. Instead, Catholics need to show that our Catholic religion stands for living by sound reason and good judgment, but especially, promoting good will and seeking to build bridges for peace.

      This Sunday is "Divine Mercy Sunday". Pray for those who are spiritually dead and promote "the culture of death". Pray for the United States, all of its public officials and goverment leaders, and for all the judges of the court system that they will first seek God and follow the Gospels for the public good. Pray also that God will give you the wisdom, the knowledge, the courage and the strength to bear witness to Christ in a positive way that will affectuate positive change.

      ABBA PENNINGTON RECOVERING FROM NEAR FATAL ACCIDENT


      Abba M. Basil Pennington, OCSO, had a very serious car crash last Tuesday during Holy Week, not far from St. Joseph's Abbey, Spencer, Massachusetts.

      He is in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the University of Massachusetts Hospital at Worcester, listed in serious but stable condition. He has 5 broken ribs, damage to his spine and a pelvic fracture. Despite the pain he is in amazing good spirits. He is praying a lot and abandoned to God's will.

      LECTIO DIVINA

      CHAPTER TWO: KNOCKING AT THE DOOR

      "The day when God is absent, when He is silent—that is the beginning
      of prayer.''

      "To meet God means to enter 'the cave of the tiger'— it is not a
      pussy cat you meet — it's a tiger." (Introduction, pages xv-xvi)


      Today the Holy Father required one of his aides to read his lectio aloud to him. We do not know if this was his last lectio for his lifetime. The Holy Father sets a great example to us that even sick in bed and unable to read the Sacred Scriptures for himself he asks someone to read them for him. Lectio is is sacred to those who practice it daily. It helps us in life and in death. Pray for the Holy Father. Pray that all his efforts for peace and unity come to fruition.

      There is no question that John Paul II is a living saint, a true holy martyr who carried the Cross of Christ. Allow his example to shine in your minds and hearts and be imitative of him.

      Vive Papa! Let God's will be done.
