Pope Francis to Undergo Intestinal Surgery Wednesday at Rome’s Gemelli Hospital

Pope Francis is scheduled to undergo intestinal surgery Wednesday at Rome's Gemelli hospital. The procedure is to treat a recurrent, painful and worsening constriction of the large intestine, and the Pope is expected to remain in the hospital for several days for recovery. This is the second time in two years that the Pope has had to undergo abdominal surgery, and the Vatican has asked for prayers for the Pope and his medical team.
