VATICAN CITY, MAR 1, 2005 (VIS) - Although a new medical bulletin on Pope John Paul's condition will not be released until Thursday, March 3, Holy See Press Office spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls told journalists today that "the Pope is well, and his condition is improving, as I told you yesterday." He spoke briefly as he entered Gemelli Hospital this morning just before 9 a.m.

  An hour later, following his daily visit to the Holy Father, Navarro-Valls indicated to journalists that "everything is normal." He said that the Pope's fifth night in the hospital was "tranquil," he "is a good patient and is continuing his voice exercises." The press office director also said that, as he was leaving Pope John Paul's 10th floor hospital suite, "the Pope was preparing to celebrate Mass."

  A brief visit to the Pope by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, was on today's agenda.
