Pope Francis returns to the Vatican. After spending three nights entered at the Gemelli Polyclinic Hospital, Francis was discharged from the hospital on Saturday morning, April 1. Before returning to Santa Marta, the Pope spent some time answering questions from journalists and took the opportunity to thank the prayers for his health.
The Holy Father's brief stay at the hospital did not stop the pace of his schedule. Taking advantage of his stay at the clinic, Francis visited the children in the pediatric oncology unit and other patients who were admitted. He also baptized a child, read and received the Eucharist. Press releases in recent days stated that he was still working from his room.
The big question now is related to the events of Holy Week. Although the Holy See has not confirmed anything, it is most likely that Pope Francis will preside over the Mass of the Palm Sunday tomorrow in St. Peter's Square.
