    Background: THE WORLD CONTINUES TO PRAY FOR POPE JOHN WHO, THIS AFTERNOON (MONDAY) - THE FOURTH DAY OF HIS STRUGGLE WITH DEATH - WAS REPORTED TO HAVE LOST "ALL SENSIBILITY TO PAIN" AND WAS NOW "SINKING PERCEPTIBLY".VATICAN RADIO SAID THE POPE'S STRONG PHYSICAL RESISTANCE TO HIS ILLNESS WAS ABOUT TO BE OVERCOME.

    FROM JAPAN COMES FILM OF ST.IGNATIO'S, THE GERMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IN TOKYO, WHERE THOUSANDS OF JAPANESE AND FOREIGN WORSHIPPERS GATHERED FOUR TIMES YESTERDAY TO PRAY FOR POPE JOHN.THERE ARE AN ESTIMATED 500,000 CHRISTIANS IN JAPAN; 60 PER CENT OF THEM ARE CATHOLIC.

    AND AT LOURDES, THE ROMAN CATHOLIC SHRINE IN FRANCE, CROWDS OF PILGRIMS CONTINUED THEIR VIGIL - MANY OF THOSE OFFERING PRAYER AT THE GROTTO WERE INVALIDS.

    (LATEST NEWS THIS EVENING WAS THAT THE POPE'S HANDS HAD GONE BLUE.CARDINAL MASELLA WAS WITH HIM.THE CARDINAL WAS SEVERAL TIMES BEEN IN THE POPE'S SICKROOM DURING RECENT DAYS.IT IS HE WHO DECLARES THE POPE TO BE DEAD WITH THE LATIN FORMULA "VERE, PAPA MORTUUS EST" (IN TRUTH, THE POPE IS DEAD").

    (EARLIER TODAY, WHEN THE POPE'S CONDITION WORSENED AND HE FELL INTO A DEEP SLEEP, HIS DOCTORS SAID SEDATIVES AND DRUGS WERE NO LONGER NEEDED.
