Pope Francis seen for first time since major surgery


Pope Francis on Sunday made his first public appearance while recovering from major surgery, thanking supporters while standing at a hospital balcony in Rome and asking for their prayers.

“I am happy to be able to keep the Sunday appointment,” the pope, 84, said from the hospital.

“I thank everyone. I very much felt your closeness and the support of your prayers. … Thank you from my heart!” said Francis, whose voice sounded weak while he’s on the mend.

The Holy Father added to applause from well-wishers, “Don’t forget to pray for me.”

Francis underwent a scheduled surgery at Rome’s Gemelli Polyclinic hospital on July 4 for “symptomatic diverticular stenosis,” a condition that required surgeons to remove part of his colon. The hospital stay is expected to last seven days “barring complications,” a Vatican spokesperson previously said.
