Pray for a speedy recovery for Pope Francis

From the Diocese of Grand Rapids: March 29, 2023

WASHINGTON – On Wednesday afternoon March 29, Pope Francis was taken to Gemelli Hospital in Rome. Reports followed that Pope Francis has a respiratory infection and will remain in the hospital for several days. Most Reverend Timothy P. Broglio of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, and president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a statement regarding the Holy Father:

“As Pope Francis recovers in the hospital from a respiratory infection, we pray intensely for our Holy Father. On behalf of my brother bishops, I invite all the faithful to pause, if possible before the Blessed Sacrament, and pray for his speedy recovery. May our dear shepherd and all those in need of healing experience the comfort of Christ.”

As people around the world pray for the pope, in a tweet on Thursday morning Vatican News invited its followers to : “send the Pope their messages of well-wishes and prayers in a retweet with comment.”
