The COVID World post date: December 10th, 2021
THE VATICAN, ROME – Pope Francis is dying, according to a secretary of one of the influential Vatican Cardinals, reported Newsmax on Wednesday.
Francis, who has been a controversial figure in the Church for his woke policies such as banning the Latin Mass and supporting vaccination, gay marriage and submission to the Chinese Communist Party, is not expected to live to the end of 2022.
Concerns at the Vatican are so serious, that it has gone into ‘pre-conclave mode’ preparing for the ritual vote among the cardinals that will select the next pontiff, even though Francis apparently had tried to slow this process by preventing the cardinals from meeting.
The current pope has not been in good health for a while. Last year, he spent days in hospital recovering from surgery to his intestine for diverticulitis, but there were rumors that it may have in fact been related to cancer. He is also missing a part of one lung from an earlier procedure.
Francis appealed to all Christians to get the COVID vaccine in August, saying that the vaccines could bring an end to the pandemic, but needed to be taken by everyone.
“Getting the vaccines that are authorised by the respective authorities is an act of love.
And helping the majority of people to do so is an act of love. Love for oneself, love for our families and friends, and love for all peoples.”
The Pope received his first Pfizer dose on January 14th and his second on February 4th. The pontiff was among the first of the Vatican’s 450 residents to get the jab as the nation-state began its vaccine rollout.
It is ‘very likely‘ that he received his booster shot in or around October.
