VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis canceled a visit to Rome’s main seminary Friday after coming down with a fever.
The 77-year-old Francis, who lost part of a lung to an infection in his youth, was due to leave the Vatican and visit with seminarians Friday evening.
But 30 minutes before he was due to arrive, Vatican guards told journalists at the seminary that he was ill and the Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, later confirmed he had come down with a slight fever and wouldn’t attend.
Doctors said he should rest, Lombardi said.
