How is Pope Francis? This is the question that has been insistently circulating among the faithful (and not only) after the Vatican press office announced in recent days that the Holy Father would miss some previously agreed appointments due to a mild flu. Well, even at today's general audience Bergoglio entrusted the reading of the prepared text to one of his collaborators, Monsignor Filippo Ciampanelli. “I still have a bit of a cold, which is why I asked Monsignor Ciampanelli to read today's catechesis”, began the Pope. Even in the audience with the Armenians he had not read the prepared text but had entrusted it to his collaborator.

The pontiff's conditions therefore should not cause any concern. Already the day before yesterday, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State, had reassured that Francis had resumed his activities after the flu symptoms that struck him. Pope Francis “had this flu episode but recovered. I had to go to him this evening but I'm here, he has resumed his normal activity”, said Parolin on the sidelines of the inauguration of an event.

How is Pope Francis

Pope Francis, 87 years old, has been hospitalized several times in recent years to undergo surgery. He himself spoke about his health conditions during an interview aired on “Che tempo che fa” last month, when he joked: “I'm still alive”. During that conversation with Fabio Fazio Bergoglio also had his say on the question of resignation as Pontiff which is talked about cyclically: “As long as I feel like it I'll carry on, when I can't take it anymore it will be time to think about it”. At the moment – the Pope added from Fazio – “it is not a thought, nor a concern, nor a desire, but a possibility open to all Popes”.
