Inside look at the Pope's health crisis

By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | Feb 09, 2005

Speaking of the recent health scare for Pope John Paul, our colleagues at Inside the Vatican have an insider's view of the events of February 1 based on their own reporting and Italian news reports. According to one source they quote, the Holy Father was ten minutes from death when he was brought to the Gemelli Hospital.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    I wonder how one determines being ten minutes from death. That sure would be useful information for all of us.
