The Pope leaves Gemelli hospital on Wednesday morning and visits the Basilica of Saint Mary Major to pray before the icon of the Virgin Mary Salus Populi Romani before returning to the Vatican just before 12 pm.
The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni, has confirmed that the Holy Father was discharged from Agostino Gemelli Hospital shortly after 10.30 this morning.
In responding to questions from journalists, he noted that “Before returning to the Vatican, the Pope went to the Basilica of Saint Mary Major where, before the icon of the Virgin Mary Salus Populi Romani, he expressed his gratitude for the success of his surgery and offered a prayer for all the sick, especially those he had met during his stay in hospital. Shortly before midday he returned to Casa Santa Marta.”
