I had a tip from a reader in Rio De Janiero (!) – who saw my UK mobile number on the last entry and called – that the Holy Father fell and broke his wrist and has had some surgery.
I sure feel for him. Been there… done that. I fell and broke my wrist very badly once, and had to have surgery and then a sort of erector set on the arm… spikes through my hands and wrist and arms and rods to tie it all together. Not fun. But I digress.
It sounds as if the Holy Father’s fracture wasn’t as bad… but it was with his writing hand.
I think he likes to write during the summer, poor guy.
So, in your charity, please pray for the Holy Father and his swift recovery.
He has a good support system.. including you!
