“Pope Francis appeared in public on Sunday for the first time since undergoing surgery for colon diverticulitis last week, as he held his weekly Angelus prayer from a hospital window. ‘I am happy to be able to keep the Sunday appointment of the Angelus, even here from the Gemelli Polyclinic,’ the Pope said speaking from a balcony of the Gemelli University Hospital in Rome where he is currently recovering. … The pontiff is gradually resuming work, is walking, his blood tests are ‘satisfactory’ and ‘he is continuing the prescribed treatment’ following last week’s surgery, a spokesperson for the Holy See said on Saturday. He is expected to be released from hospital in the next few days.” (07/11/21)
