  • Description

    THE VATICAN CITY ANNOUNCED TODAY (THURSDAY) THAT POPE JOHN - WHO AWOKE THIS MORNING "FULL OF VITALITY" - WAS BEING TREATED FOR STOMACH TROUBLE WHICH HAS CAUSED ANAEMIA. IT WAS THE FIRST OFFICIAL STATEMENT SINCE CONFLICTING REPORTS ON THE 81-YEAR-OLD PONTIFF'S HEALTH BEGAN CIRCULATING TWO DAYS AGO.

    POPE JOHN'S PERSONAL DOCTOR, PROFESSOR ANTONIO CASBARRINI, ARRIVED IN ROME YESTERDAY. AFTER VISITING THE POPE IN THE AFTERNOON HE DISMISSED UNCONFIRMED REPORTS THAT THE PONTIFF MIGHT UNDERGO AN OPERATION FOR A PROSTATE GLAND CONDITION.

    TODAY'S STATEMENT SAID THAT, SINCE TUESDAY, THE POPE HAD INTERRUPTED THE SERIES OF AUDIENCES HE HAD BEEN GIVING TO BISHOPS ATTENDING THE ECUMENICAL COUNCIL IN ROME "AFTER SYMPTOMS OF GASTROPATHY HAD BECOME ACUTE". THE GASTRIC CONDITION HAD CAUSED A "FAIRLY INTENSE" ANEMIA, THE ANNOUNCEMENT SAID.
