(ZENIT News / Rome, 06.14.2023).- Although in a shorter form than the reports issued at the beginning of the Pope’s hospitalization, the Holy See Press Office reported the progress he has made after his surgical intervention.

Among rumours of an imminent medical discharge, notified around midday was that “The Holy Father rested well during the night (of Tuesday, June 13, editor’s note). The medical staff reported that the clinical course is unfolding without complications, so that his discharge is planned for the coming days.”

Known was that the Pope spent the morning “dedicated to his work” and that “before lunch he went to the Chapel on his private floor, where he recollected himself in prayer and received the Eucharist.” 

Towards the late afternoon ZENIT received another short notification, which reported that in the afternoon, “Pope Francis continued his work, alternating it with rest and recovery.”
