Pope’s Extended Silence at Palm Sunday Mass Sparks Speculation About Health During Easter

Pope Francis’s health concerns have been renewed after an incident during Palm Sunday celebrations where he did not give the homily, leading to a long silence that spread to the faithful in attendance. The silent moment left many wondering what had happened, with some attributing it to a decision by the pontiff for collective reflection in the midst of confusion.

Despite his age and respiratory problems that make it difficult for him to give long speeches due to persistent coughing attacks, Francis resumed the ceremony with the Creed and spoke briefly at the end of the celebration, condemning a terrorist attack in Moscow. However, there was no explanation provided by the Vatican for his silence.

The Pope’s surgeon, Dr. Sergio Alfieri, has reassured that he is in good health for his age but faces challenges as both leader of the Church and head of state with a busy schedule ahead. This includes trips to Venice and the second part of the Synod of Synods in October.

Francis usually relies on one of his collaborators to read his speeches when he experiences difficulty giving them himself. However, Sunday’s silence was unique where he did not offer any explanation. Questions regarding his health have arisen, with some speculating if he will be able to fulfill all his upcoming commitments without any further complications.
