A source in the Vatican indicated that the treatment is continuing and bearing fruit, but this rare change in the mechanism of work of the Holy See has revived concern about the Pope's ability to perform his duties and awakened rumors about the possibility of his resignation, according to what Euronews reported today (Monday).
The Pope was scheduled to visit the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan, starting from the beginning of next July, but the trip was postponed until further notice.
Many people's questions increased when they saw the Pope's pain reflected on his face in some of his appearances. Will he be able to go to Canada for a visit scheduled for the end of July?
The 85-year-old Pope has been traveling since the beginning of May, using a wheelchair, with or without a stick, due to severe pain in the right knee. To relieve his pain, he receives regular injections and undergoes sessions of physical therapy.
