Praying for pope to recover, as well as to die peacefully
Many are praying for Pope John Paul's recovery -- but some are praying for a gentle death for the ailing, 84-year-old pontiff.
In John Paul's hometown in Poland, a 17-year-old was one of many who came to pray at the church where the pope was baptized. She says in spite of the "alarming statements" from the Vatican, she hopes he improves.
Some took time off work to pray. In Warsaw, an unemployed man who said he doesn't go to church or even believe in many things religious was inspired to go to church today because he does believe in the pope.
