The disease that has punished Pope Francis is severe and degenerative. The Pope will not be the same. Nobody knows today if his pilgrimage to Hungary and Slovakia (which Jorge Bergoglio announced on the same Sunday the 4th that he was operated on) will be possible.
All this and more It’s in an article-bomb published this Wednesday by the Catholic Vatican affairs site “Il Sismografo” and signed by the initials LB and RC. LB is Luis Badilla, a veteran Chilean journalist with many years in the Latin American newsroom of Vatican Radio.
Francisco, 84, underwent surgery on Sunday at the Gemelli polyclinic and rests on the 10th floor in the same room that accommodated his predecessor John Paul II several times. A left hemicolectomy was performed, but no medical reports have been released, only the daily reports from the Vatican.
Luis Badilla is the director of the Seismograph, which is not an official organ of the Vatican but follows a narrow line and fervently supports the Pope. Publishes articles from the world’s leading newspapers and magazines in five or six languages and receives 35 thousand daily inquiries. The name was given by John Paul II when he said that journalists “are like seismographs that measure the vibrations of public opinion.”
“The disease that has punished Pope Francis is severe and degenerative. It could also be chronic “
Il Seismografo is one of the first sites that specialists in Vatican issues and those who want a plural information about the Catholic world.
The article has been titled “Pope Francis does not need the cortigianeria through the press ”. It is an Italian term to indicate an attitude of courtiers, bootlicker said in a more clear and brutal way, that according to the agency, with its rhetoric that shows a Jorge Mario Bergoglio superman, “damages his image and charisma.”
The future of the Pope
The article is very interesting to interpret What will happen in the future of the pontificate of Francis. For readers of Clarion, it is best to fully translate this instrument of reflection.
“First of all we want to renew our wishes and our prayers to the Holy Father Francis and thank God who has protected him in a moment extremely delicate, not only giving him recovery capacity but also vitality and reactivity and, something to highlight, a medical team and a health center among the best in the world.
“Certainly the Holy Father will return to the Vatican to resume his path in the footsteps of Peter, but he will no longer be the same.”
“But there is a very significant detail in these hours that many underestimate, ignore or manipulate: the disease that has punished Pope Francis is severe and degenerative. It could also be chronic”.
“Certainly the Holy Father will return to the Vatican to resume his path in the footsteps of Peter but it will no longer be the same.
“All the rhetoric of a Jorge Mario Bergoglio superman it damages their image and their charisma. People who read, listen, or watch the news they are not stupid and unable to reflect and put demands on themselves, even because millions of families have had similar experiences with their own elderly.
What happened in the operating room
“We know from numerous important press sources that the Pope, on Sunday afternoon, underwent total anesthesia and powerful sedatives, first underwent a laparoscopic intervention and then a ‘open cast’ surgical manipulation to work with the hands in a total visible field.

“Laparoscopy has encountered insurmountable obstacles and, as frequently occurs in this type of operation, the surgeon and his team decided – the patient had given his consent to this possibility at the time he was admitted – to switch to another method that consented removal of several inches of the colon which are now under rigorous histological examination.
“In a paragraph of the bulletin of the Vatican Press Room, on Tuesday, it is assured that the Pontiff ‘has had breakfast’, so it is possible to deduce that the surgical intervention it hasn’t been particularly devastating and that is great news ”.
“The adult and mature faithful understand with pain that Pope Francis will live the life that God will give him with many physical, physiological limits and also metabolic.

“Shall be followed continuously with important clinical controls and other hospitalizations, albeit brief, can be hypothesized The necessary instruments for imaging diagnostics they don’t exist in the Vatican and those of the Gemelli polyclinic in Rome are the most technologically modern.
“That is why it is good to wait with affection and serenity what the Holy Father will want to do so that everything is the result of your decisions and those of the doctors who advise you, without having to suffer media pressure.
“No need to invent anything to keep Francisco’s profile high, especially international and even intercontinental travel. It is clear that Francis wishes to go to Budapest for the closing of the 52nd International Eucharistic Congress and then to Slovakia, in the middle of next September, but no one knows today if this pilgrimage it will be possible.
“We have to hope that these visits will come true, but nothing more can be added. The Holy Father must carefully heal his health and in this he must be helped by everyone, especially by Catholics. He knows that your life must change a lot: fatigue, rest, limits, diet, physical rehabilitation exercises …
“A small way to be close to the Pope while he recovers his strength – a slow gradual and complex process – is to end the attitude of courtiers through the press. Pope Francis doesn’t need it. “
