Declaration of the Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni, 09.07.2021
His Holiness Pope Francis spent a quiet day with normal clinical progress. He continued to eat regularly and continued his scheduled treatment.
He walked in the corridor and resumed his work, alternating it with moments of reading texts.
In the afternoon, he celebrated Holy Mass in the chapel of his private apartment, attended by all those assisting him during his hospitalisation.
Following the brief episode with a slight temperature, the Holy Father is without fever.
Next Sunday the Angelus will be recited from the tenth floor of the "A. Gemelli" University Hospital.
The Holy Father gives thanks for the many messages of affection and closeness that he receives daily and asks that we continue to pray for him.
