Must Read

Pope Francis, who just underwent colon surgery, is recovering and will return to the city as soon as possible, according to the Vatican.

The Catholic leader, who conducted the Angelus on July 11, 2021, from the Gemelli Hospital in Rome, was brought to the hospital on July 4 after suffering from a form of diverticulitis, an inflammation of pockets that develop in the intestinal lining.

“The Holy Father is continuing his planned treatment and rehabilitation, which will allow him to return to the Vatican as soon as possible.

“Among the many patients he (the pope) has met during these days, he addressed a special thought to those who are bedridden and cannot return home,” Matteo Bruni, spokesman of the Vatican, said on Tuesday.

Bruni said the pontiff will stay in the hospital for approximately a week at first.
