Roman Catholics across Ohio pray for pope
Noon Mass today across Ohio will be filled with prayer for gravely ill Pope John Paul the Second. Pastors of Roman Catholic churches in Cincinnati say no special services are scheduled.
The Reverend David Fay, pastor of two suburban Cincinnati churches, says God has blessed the church through the pope. He says there would be a special service if the pope dies before Sunday.
The Vatican describes the pope as "fully conscious" after suffering heart failure. He's said to be in "very grave" condition. But that hasn't stopped him from celebrating Mass this morning and meeting with top aides.
Officials say he asked one of them to read him the biblical account of Christ's crucifixion and burial.
