Vatican says Pope Francis is feeling better
Pope Francis is doing better after his first “quiet night” at the hospital, Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni says.
The head of the Catholic Church had “recovered well,” Bruni said, and his condition was continually improving and his treatment continued as planned.
The pontiff worked and read some newspapers in the morning.
In the private apartment within Gemelli University Hospital, he prayed in a small chapel and received the Holy Communion, Bruni added.
