Pope Francis retirement rumors driven by ‘confusion’: Jonathan Morris
Theologian and Fox News contributor Jonathan Morris responds to rumors that Pope Francis could soon retire amid alleged health concerns.
Pope Francis was hospitalized after having difficulty breathing recently and tests revealed a respiratory inspection, a Vatican spokesman said.
“The tests showed a respiratory infection (COVID-19 infection excluded) that will require some days of medical therapy,” Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said on Wednesday.
Bruni said that Francis doesn’t have COVID-19.
