Vatican source tells Newsmax John Gizzi that ‘Pope Francis is dying,’ with insiders saying they believe the Pontiff will not survive past 2022.
Pope Francis’ health condition is so serious that people close to him do not believe he will live past next year, says Newsmax chief political columnist and White House correspondent John Gizzi.
Gizzi cites Vatican sources, including “the secretary of one of the most powerful Vatican cardinals.”
In fact, the pope underwent surgery due to the ailments of diverticulitis, a disorder of the colon wall, in July, and it also appears that at nearly 85 years of age, he “is physically and perhaps mentally not well,” Gizzi adds.
“There is a very significant detail that many in these hours underestimate, ignore or manipulate: the disease that has struck Pope Francis is severe and degenerative. It could also be chronic,” Luis Badiolla Morales, who is close to Francis and has good contacts, shared in those days.
Because of that surgery he remained confined in a hospital in Rome for 10 days, and although officially it was not mentioned that he had cancer, for some his ailment is much greater than what has been reported.
Gizi added that Vatican officials are already in “pre-conclave mode” and preparing the logistics for Francis’ passing.
Francis himself alluded to the conclave after his operation: “I am still alive, even though some people wanted me to die. I know there were even meetings between prelates who thought the pope’s condition was more serious than the official version. They were preparing for the conclave,” as he said in Slovakia on Sept. 12, 2021.
