Pope Francis suffering from Fever: All appointments cancelled

The Vatican’s Spokesman, Fr. Federico Lombardi SJ announced on Thursday 25th of February that the Holy Father, Pope Francis after his usual morning mass has cancelled all pending appointments due to a small fever.

The spokesman, Fr. Lombardi, explained to the journalists on Feb. 25 that the cancellations were caused by “a slight indisposition," which he described as a “slight fever." He further explained the fever as “not serious” because the Holy Father had finished celebrating his usual morning mass at the Vatican’s St. Martha guesthouse before his strength failed him. Fr. Lombardi stressed that there is nothing to worry about, and that the Pope usually “recovers quickly" when he’s sick.

There have been times when the Holy Father took ill and appointments got cancelled, so this will not be an exception, it’s believed that the Holy Father will soon recover from the slight fever.

Having that Pope Francis has been through alot of event lately it is no thing of surprise that he breaks down with fever. Since a day after his five days Apostolic trip to Mexico, he had continued his routine activities without missing a bit, meeting with groups and individuals throughout the day.

On Saturday he celebrated his second Jubilee general audience of the Holy Year, which takes place once a month on a Saturday, and on Sunday spoke to pilgrims during his weekly Angelus address.

Despite today’s fever, Pope Francis is expected to resume his normal schedule soon. He just took a little rest.

    I would have a fever and more, if my subordinates carried on like his has. They are pitiful examples of human beings.

    I pray that the people around Pope Francis will consider his age and realize that he must not be over-worked. His words alone are very important, so I don’t like to see him dragged around so much, and be expected to stand at huge rituals. Let us have mercy on Pope Francis. – Nanaimo, B. C. Canada.
