  • Pope Francis, the leader of the Catholic Church, is currently hospitalized in Rome due to a respiratory infection. However, there is positive news as his health is reported to be progressively improving, according to a spokesperson for the Vatican. He was admitted to the hospital yesterday but resumed working today. The 86-year-old pope is anticipated to remain in the hospital for several days. The Vatican has not provided a specific timeline for his treatment or mentioned his involvement in upcoming Easter celebrations. Chris Livesay, a foreign correspondent for CBS News, is reporting from Rome and providing updates on the pope's condition. The Vatican's statement released early this morning in the U.S. stated that the pope had a good night's sleep and prayed in the hospital's chapel. It was also mentioned that he read newspapers after breakfast and started working from his hospital bed. Pope Francis expressed his gratitude to his millions of followers for their expressions of sympathy through a tweet. However, the Vatican has not disclosed the exact duration of his hospital stay, only stating that they expect him to be there for several days. With Palm Sunday and other significant events approaching, there is anticipation and concern over the pope's involvement.
  • Subtitles section
  • A spokesperson for the Vatican says Pope Francis' health is, quote, progressively improving.
  • Positive news there.
  • The leader of the Catholic Church remains hospitalized, though, in Rome because of a respiratory infection.
  • The Vatican says Pope Francis resumed working today after he was admitted yesterday.
  • The pope, who is 86 years old, is expected to remain hospitalized now for several days.
  • Joining us now from there in Rome is CBS News foreign correspondent Chris Livesay.
  • Chris, what else are we learning about how the pope's condition, about the pope's condition, rather, and the timeline of his treatment?
  • I know there's a lot of Catholics that are concerned about him and also wondering if he'll be involved more in Easter celebrations.
  • Hi, Lana and Errol.
  • Well, we know that his condition is improving.
  • That's according to the Vatican.
  • It came out with a statement early this morning in the U.S., at least according to the time in the U.S. It was the afternoon here already, when it announced that his condition was improving, that he'd slept well through the night,
  • That he prayed in the chapel that's here at the Gemelli Hospital.
  • In fact, that's his room on the top floor behind me, if you can see those shutters that are closed.
  • They also said that right after breakfast he read the newspapers and he went straight to work from his hospital bed.
  • So he appears to be wasting no time, also wasting no time in sending out tweets.
  • He tweeted out to his millions of followers how moved he was by all the expressions of sympathy that he's received.
  • But as far as how long he's going to be in the hospital, the Vatican isn't saying.
  • So clearly they just say they expect him to be in here for several days.
  • And Chris, we know Sunday is Palm Sunday and there are other major events.
  • Some call it the biggest events on the Catholic calendar that the Pope is expected to participate in.
  • What is the status of that considering he is now up and working?
  • So Palm Sunday is this Sunday that marks the beginning of Holy Week, culminating in Easter Sunday, the following weekend.
  • This is the busiest time of the year, the holiest time of the year for the Catholic Church.
  • Good Friday marking the crucifixion of Christ and then the resurrection on Easter.
  • As of now, we don't know if Pope Francis will be celebrating Holy Week from St. Peter's Square or from right here inside of his hospital room.
  • If he isn't celebrating it, of course, there will be somebody else who's nominated to officiate in his place.
  • And you can just imagine the throngs of people who come to Rome and the Vatican to celebrate this week.
  • They may not find Pope Francis in St. Peter's Square.
  • Therefore, we may find lots and lots of well-wishers here at the hospital hoping for a swift recovery.
  • Yeah.
  • And, you know, if we see him pop out of that window, Chris, you'll be sure to tell us, I hope.
  • My place.
  • Chris, let's say thank you.
  • Sure.
  • We'll be here to get that on camera.
  • Thank you.
