The health of Pope Francis once again became a matter of concern worldwide. This Friday, surprisingly, the top leader of the Catholic Church suspended his hearing schedule.
“Due to a fever, Pope Francis did not receive (anyone) in audience this morning”, explained the Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni, in response to a reporter’s question about why there was no person registered for the daily routine that same day.

The spokesman did not offer further details about the health of the 86-year-old Roman Catholic leader.
The health of Pope Francis
Francis spent five days in a Rome hospital in late March with bronchitis, but made a quick recovery after an infusion of antibiotics and returned to duty, including a three-day trip to Hungary in late April.
This Thursday afternoon, the images in a meeting near the Vatican with young people showed Francisco fatigued and with obvious signs of fatigue.

Francis, who became pope 10 years ago, is missing part of a lung that he underwent surgery on as a young man in his native Argentina.
None of the events scheduled for the Pope were canceled and must preside over a Pentecost Mass on Sunday in St. Peter’s Square.
It is still unknown if this Saturday he will resume his obligations or keep the agenda closed looking to recover.
