Pope Francis is hospitalized again; that was the reason

Pope Francis, 87 years old, who has been suffering from a “mild flu” for several days, He underwent tests at a hospital in Rome on Wednesday morning. The Vatican announced this.

“After the general audience, Pope Francis went to the Gemelli Hospital, traditionally used by the Holy See, for follow-up examinations. He then returned to the Vatican,” the Holy See said in a statement.

The Argentine Pope’s white Fiat 500 left the hospital in the center of the Italian capital at around 12:00 p.m. (local time) under police escort. This morning Jorge Bergoglio held his weekly general audience at the Vatican, but did not read his own text.

“I still have a slight cold,” he apologized, his voice breaking in front of the thousands of worshipers as he entrusted the reading to a staff member.

The Pope had canceled his appointments on Saturday and Monday, but celebrated the Angelus prayer on Sunday. Francisco, who travels in a wheelchair, had a number of health problems in recent years, especially in the knees, hips and colon. He also underwent abdominal surgery in June and canceled his trip to Dubai for COP28 in December due to bronchitis.
