The Final Hours of Pope John Paul II
Last edited 31st March 2015

This was the last time that Pope John Paul II appeared in St. Peter's Square. It was Wednesday, March 30, 2005. He was very weak and unable to speak. Two months earlier, doctors performed a tracheotomy on him. That was followed by two serious infections. Locals knew that his hours were numbered.
