Odd timing or what!

Pope getting nutrition from feeding tube

VATICAN CITY - Pope John Paul II is getting nutrition from a feeding tube through the nose, the Vatican said on Wednesday, shortly after the frail pontiff appeared at his window in St. Peter’s Square and unsuccessfully tried to speak. Vatican spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls said the tube was aimed at improving the pope’s calorie intake. It was not visible when the pope made his appearance. It said the pope continues “his slow and progressive convalescence” and that public audiences remain suspended.


Coincidence...maybe not
