The Vatican reported that Pope Francis has been admitted to the Gemelli hospital in Rome for scheduled check-ups. However, Italian media stated that the Pope presented “respiratory difficulties” and was taken by ambulance to undergo tests. The Vatican did not mention any reason for the check-ups, but the “Corriere della Sera” newspaper suggested that the Pope has had “problems cardiac arrest and respiratory distress.”

Schedule Canceled for Necessary Checks

The Pope’s schedule for the next two days has been canceled, as the necessary controls are carried out on him due to the respiratory distress judged alarming by the Vatican doctors. Hospitalization is almost certain, with security personnel alerted to spend the night on the tenth floor of the Agostino Gemelli Polyclinic reserved for the pontiffs.

Diverticula Problem

In a recent interview, the Pope revealed that he was suffering from diverticula again, which is the problem for which he had to undergo surgery and remove a small part of the colon. He assured that he was in good health, but he seems to have faced a few issues with his right knee, due to which he walks with a cane or a wheelchair.

Final Thoughts

Pope Francis’ Palm Sunday mass is scheduled for next Sunday. We hope and pray that the Pope recovers soon and continues his exemplary work in serving humanity.
