The Vatican said that former Pope Benedict XVI is stable and was able “rest well” last night.
This update was made amid concerns about the health of Pope Francis predecessor. He said that he was “very sick” and asked for prayers to God to comfort him “to his very last”.
According to the Vatican, the former head of Catholic Church was able to attend Mass in his own room after he retired in 600 years.
According to a Vatican spokesperson, “Last night, the Pope Emeritus was well. He also took part in Holy Mass being celebrated in his bedroom yesterday afternoon.
“At the moment his condition is stable.”
After his retirement, he assumed the title of Pope Emeritus. He chose to retire in solitude in a Vatican monastery.
The Vatican stated earlier this week that the condition of the 95-year old had suddenly “worsened because of age”.
