We have received word that Pope Francis is receiving treatment for a respiratory infection at Gemelli Hospital in Rome.
He entered the hospital today after experiencing symptoms and tests confirmed the presence of an infection.
I am asking the people of the archdiocese to join me in praying for the swift and complete recovery of the Holy Father.
Over the past month, people around the world prayed millions of Hail Marys to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Holy Father’s election to the chair of Peter. We responded then to Pope Francis’s often repeated request to pray for him. Let us continue our prayers, this time for the return of this extraordinary shepherd to good health and to his work of spreading the joy of God’s love and mercy.
