Pope Francis left the hospital to return to the Vatican this Saturday (1st) after being hospitalized to treat bronchitis, making little case of his illness, saying: “I was not scared, I am still alive.”
The 86-year-old pontiff was taken to the Gemelli hospital, in Rome, at the fourth fair (29) after complaining of respiratory difficulties, but responded quickly to an infusion of antibiotics, said his medical team.
A media was kept long when he left the hospital for the last time in 2021, after a colon surgery. This time, trying to show the world that he was fully recovered, Francis got out of the car, complimenting supporters and talking like reporters who were waiting for us.
He used a flare to sustain himself, hugged a couple whose son had died during the night in the hospital and prayed with them, and also killed the gesso mold of a boy with a broken arm.

O Pope, who celebrates the 10th anniversary of his pontificate in March, has experienced several years in recent years.
The spokesperson of the Vatican Matteo Bruni confirmed on the sixth fair (31) that Francis will participate in the service this weekend for Palm Sunday – a large non-calendar event of the Church that begins the celebrations of Easter week.
Holy Week included a full schedule of rituals and ceremonies that can be physically exhausting, including a nocturnal procession of the Sixth-Feira Santa in the Coliseu de Roma.
O rector of the college of cardeais, Giovanni Battista ReHe said that a cardinal or pope would help during the week’s celebrations and take care of two altar duties.
A similar arrangement was adopted last year, when the father sat on his side during some Easter events due to persistent pain in Joelho, leaving it to the senior cardeais to lead the masses.
