As expected, this morning, April 1, Pope Francis was discharged from Gemelli hospital, after a course of IV antibiotics cleared a respiratory infection. He is scheduled to celebrate Palm Sunday Mass tomorrow in St. Peter’s Square.
He was admitted last Wednesday after the general audience.
As the Holy Father left the hospital, he got out of the car to greet some of the people present.
“He embraced a couple of parents who lost their daughter last night, stopping to pray with them,” reported Matteo Bruni, director of the Vatican press office.
