APRIL 1, 2005 - Posted at 7:32 a.m. CST

 

VATICAN CITY - The Vatican says Pope John Paul is conscious and lucid but remains in "very serious" condition today.  The pope's health has worsened and yesterday he suffered heart failure.  The Vatican says John Paul has been "informed of the gravity of his situation."

WARSAW, Poland - People in Poland are flocking to churches today to pray for the country's most famous son. 

Pope John Paul is from southern Poland and his health has deteriorated as of late.  The Vatican says he's in "very serious" condition after suffering heart failure during treatment for a urinary tract infection yesterday.

Today, young people in his hometown took time out from school to pray for his health.

One 17-year-old says "the only way we can help him is by prayer."

And another resident says "we can only pray for him so he can pull through these difficult moments...all the rest is in the hands of God."
