As is well known, on the 7th of June, Pope Francis underwent surgery at the Gemelli Hospital in Rome. The Pope is “in a generally good condition” and is peaceful. He is thankful for the messages of solidarity that are being sent to him from all over the world and asks people to continue praying for him.
Margaret Karram has also sent him prayers and affection on behalf of the whole Focolare Movement.

We assure you that we will continue to support you, asking the Father for your full recovery, so that you may continue your invaluable ministry.
I send you my most affectionate greetings and those of the Focolare Movement!
