POPE SAID MASS FRIDAY, DINED WITH MEDICAL PERSONNEL

July 10, 2021: Press Office statement referring to Friday, July 9 on the continuing recovery of Pope Francis following July 4 surgery: “Pope Francis’ day was calm, with the expected clinical progress. His blood tests are satisfactory and he is continuing the prescribed treatment. He is gradually resuming work and continues to stroll in the hall of the apartment. In the afternoon, he celebrated Holy Mass in the private chapel and in the evening he dined with those who are assisting him during these days. The Holy Father, experiencing first-hand the human dedication of the medical and health personnel assisting him, addresses a special thought to all those who with care and compassion choose the face of suffering, engaging in a personal relationship with the sick, especially the most fragile and vulnerable.”
