WelCom August 2022
Pope Francis has said he has no plans to resign soon and that his knee injury is healing. Reports of Pope Francis resigning began to spread recently in light of three events that were to happen in late August. These included the creation of new cardinals and a day trip to the Italian city of L’Aquila, which Benedict XVI visited in 2009, four years before announcing his own resignation.
Pope Francis said that ‘all of these coincidences made some think that the same “liturgy” would happen. But it never entered my mind. For the moment no, for the moment, no. Really!’ The Pope said he would consider resigning one day if he could no longer run the Church due to poor health, but only ‘God will say’ when that might be.
