If Il Santo Padre Giovanni Paolo II - Pope John Paul II - goes into a coma you can bet that it won't be for 15 years.
I'm an atheist but I will say this - the world is about to lose a great man. Maybe I don't believe in everything that he stands for, and that he abuses his power by beatifying more people than any other Pope to gain a groundswell of support for the Catholic Church, but he is a man of peace and goodwill. PJP II has done a good job and I don't see much point in prolonging his life.
I also don't see any point in praying for him. Praying for the head of the religion? How absurd. If he isn't a good enough man to get into Heaven then he should go to Hell. If those places even existed. Why pray for someone who is 84 years old? He's had a good innings. Maybe I am missing the point altogether.
Riposa In Pace - when your time comes Karol Wojtyla. You have served well on Earth.
