Holy See Press Office director Matteo Bruni said on Tuesday that the post-operative recovery of Pope Francis is proceeding normally. The results of routine follow-up tests are good.
The Pope went to Rome’s Agostino Gemelli hospital on Sunday for a colon operation.
Bruni noted in the statement that “His Holiness Pope Francis rested well overnight. This morning he had breakfast, read a few newspapers, and got up to walk.”
