Pope Francis sent a tweet on Wednesday thanking people around the world for their kind messages and care regarding his health, as he continues his recovery at Rome’s Gemelli Hospital following his surgery.

The Pope writes in his tweet: “I am touched by the many caring messages received in these days. I thank everyone for their closeness and prayer.”
