Serious illness report Untrue

AN authoritative statement from the Vatican says there

is no foundation for an American agency report that the Holy Father is seriously ill and has refused .to cease all activity on medical advice.

The report stated that His Holiness is suffering from the same condition which obliged the King to undergo an operation.

In fact the Pope has resumed his afternoon walks in the Vatican Gardens and the routine audiences for the Curia. He has. also been granting audiences to visiting Bishops.

Last Saturday. he received 200 rosiicii and Brazilian pilgrims in separate audiences. On Sunday, he received 7,000 pilgrims 'in three general audiences.

Yesterday (Thursday) was the Holy Father's 74th birthday and the I I th anniversary of his election.

His Holiness will celebrate Mass in St. Peter's—instead of the Sistine Chapel of the Vatican — for the anniversary of his coronation of Sunday, March 12.
