Pope Francis, feverish, canceled his program this Friday morning – World Today News
Pope Francis, 86, canceled his appointments on Friday morning due to a feverish state, the Vatican said. “Due to a feverish state, Pope Francis did not receive an audience this morning,” said Holy See spokesman Matteo Bruni, without specifying what the Argentine pope’s planned program was in the morning.
This announcement comes two months after the pope was hospitalized for three days in Rome at the end of March, due to pneumonia, from which he emerged after a course of antibiotics.
“Some days are more painful than others”
Pope Francis said Thursday in an interview with Spanish-language television Telemundo that this pneumonia had been treated “in time”. “If we had waited a few more hours, it would have been much more serious,” he said. As for his knee pain, which forces him to move around in a wheelchair or using a cane, he said he felt “much better”. “Some days are more painful than others, like today, but that’s part of the recovery,” he said.
Asked about his health at the end of April, on returning from a trip to Hungary, the pope had announced his intention to continue to travel: he must go to Lisbon from August 2 to 6 for World Youth Day (WYD) then in Marseilles in September, as well as in Mongolia.
In his youth, at the age of 21, Jorge Bergoglio suffered from acute pleurisy and surgeons proceeded to partially remove his right lung. The health of Jorge Bergoglio, elected in 2013, regularly fuels speculation about the possibility of a renunciation of his office and his succession.
