Pope Francis was on Sunday admitted to a hospital in Rome for “scheduled surgery” to treat a colon ailment, reports said.
Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said there would be more information after the surgery for “symptomatic diverticular stenosis” of the colon had taken place at the Gemelli University Hospital, the BBC reported.
This is the first time Pope Francis has been admitted to hospital since his election in 2013. Earlier on Sunday, the 84-year-old pontiff addressed thousands of visitors in St Peter’s Square.
Diverticular disease is a condition that involves bulges in the large intestine’s wall, which can lead to the colon narrowing, and cause bloating, recurrent abdominal pain and changes in bowel habits.
HinduPost comment : The Pope should use this occasion to show his faith and miraculously cure himself from the ailment. If not Pope, we have such miraculous Christian healers in Bharat from Paul Dhinakaran to Ankur Narula, who should be told to demonstrate their power on Pope. Afterall, they can cure cancer, AIDS and other major diseases so what is this small ailment?
In fact, if the Pope and the combined Christian healers of the world cannot do so, they should playing fraud on the people and take their money in the name of healing people.
