Vatican denies rumors that Pope has brain tumor

(Vatican Radio)  The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Father Federico Lombardi, has called reports that Pope Francis has “a small dark spot on the brain”, as unfounded.

He issued the denial after an Italian newspaper reported that Pope Francis had sought treatment for a tumor.

Father Lombardi said Pope Francis was carrying out his activities as usual and the spread of unfounded rumours was “extremely irresponsible and not worthy of attention”.

Original source.

V. Let us pray for Pope Francis
R. May the Lord preserve him, give him a long life, make him blessed upon the earth, and may the Lord not hand him over to the power of his enemies.

V. May your hand be upon your holy servant.
R. And upon your son whom you have anointed.

Let us pray. O God, the Pastor and Ruler of all the faithful, look down, in your mercy, upon your servant, N., whom you have appointed to preside over your Church; and grant, we beseech you, that both by word and example, he may edify all those under his charge; so that, with the flock entrusted to him, he may arrive at length unto life everlasting. Through Christ our Lord. R. Amen.
