Prayers For The Pope. So Sad

According to a Vatican statement, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI’s health has deteriorated due to his age, and doctors continually evaluate his condition.

After requesting the faithful to pray for Benedict earlier in the day, Pope Francis visited him at the monastery on Vatican grounds, where he has lived since his retirement in 2013.

“Concerning the health problems of the emeritus pope, for whom Pope Francis asked for prayers at the close of his general audience this morning, I can report that a worsening owing to advanced age has occurred in the recent hours,” said Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni.
