Pope’s ailments details emerging…

Posted on

More of the ailments afflicting Pope Benedict XVI continue to emerge, as it becomes all too apparent he wasn’t exaggerating that his age precluded him from finishing out his papacy.

Message for the pope

A week after Pope Benedict announced his resignation, more than 100,000 supporters jammed into St. Peter’s Square on Sunday for his next-to-last weekly Angelus blessing, as it emerged the aging pontiff may have gone blind in one eye.

Peter Seewald, a German journalist who has interviewed Benedict on numerous occasions, said that when he last saw the pope 10 weeks ago, his hearing had deteriorated and he appeared to have gone blind in his left eye.

Let us pray for the spiritual and physical well being of the Holy Father as the soon-to-be Conclave meets to elect his successor, the 266th one to St Peter, upon whom Christ founded His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, the only Christian Church with a line unbroken back to its Founder.
