Pope Benedict XVI Doesn’t Have Paralysis, He Is In Good Health, Report From Neue Post Is False – Vatican Spokesman
The Vatican today denied a new magazine report claiming that Pope Benedict is battling paralysis and nervous system disease.
A Vatican spokesman told Reuters few hours ago that the viral report in the Neue Post German Magazine quoting Benedict’s older brother was false.
Here is a statement the Vatican released to counter the report:
90-year-old Benedict, a German who was the first pope to resign in six centuries said earlier this month he was in the last phase of his life.
