Former Pope Benedict Recovering From ‘Painful’ Condition
THE VATICAN SAYS FORMER POPE BENEDICT IS RECOVERING FROM A ‘PAINFUL’ BUT ‘NOT SERIOUS CONDITION.’
(CNN) – The former pope has had some health issues recently.
Exactly what those are though; isn’t clear.
The Vatican would only say former Pope Benedict the 16th is recovering from what they’re calling a painful condition, but they say it’s not serious.
His private secretary said it’s not cause for particular concern, pointing out that he’s 93-years-old.
The statement comes after a report in a German newspaper claimed he had shingles, calling him “extremely frail.”
