VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Pope Francis made his first public appearance since returning to the Vatican in the middle of the week after an 11-day stay in hospital, telling lovers they should take a break and unwind from stress. of modern life.
“Let’s stop the frantic running dictated by our schedules. Let’s learn to take a break, to turn off the mobile phone,” Pope Francis said in his weekly address from a window overlooking St. Peter’s Square.
The 84-year-old pope had part of his colon removed in an operation on July 4, the first time Francis faced a significant health problem during his eight-year papacy.
He led last Sunday’s Angelus prayer and blessing from the balcony of his suite at Rome’s Gemelli hospital and returned to the Vatican on Wednesday, where he needed help from assistants to get out of his car.
He looked good on Sunday, speaking in a clear and strong voice.
