The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni, has provided the latest update on how Pope Francis is doing in hospital noting that, "The Holy Father is continuing his planned treatment and rehabilitation, which will allow him to return to the Vatican as soon as possible."

The statement notes, "Among the many patients he has met during these days, he addressed a special thought to those who are bedridden and cannot return home: may they live this time as an opportunity, even if experienced in pain, to open themselves with tenderness to their sick brother or sister in the next bed, with whom they share the same human frailty."
