Pray for Pope Francis' Recovery


As you know, Pope Francis underwent surgery this past Sunday.  On Monday, the Vatican Press Office reported:

"His Holiness Pope Francis is in good general condition, alert and breathing spontaneously.

The surgery for diverticular stenosis carried out in the evening of 4 July involved a left hemicolectomy and lasted around three hours.

He is expected to remain in hospital for approximately seven days, barring any complications."

Please join me in keeping him in our prayers in a special way this week as he recovers.
