Pope denies rumors of possible resignation abroad

Pope Francis is denying rumors that he may step down soon due to health problems. However, he hopes to be able to travel to Kyiv and Moscow soon.

“It never crossed my mind,” the pope said in an interview with Reuters news agency. “Not right now, really!” The interview took place on Saturday at his residence in the Vatican.

The Pope had to cancel a trip to Africa in early July due to severe pain in his right knee. This pain has fueled speculation in recent weeks about a possible resignation of the Pope, like his predecessor, Benedict XVI.

Admittedly, Francis asserted that he could resign his position if his health prevented him from leading the Church. When asked when this would happen, he replied, “We don’t know. God will say.”

The Pope noted that he had a “slight fracture” in his knee. He denied rumors that he had been diagnosed with cancer during an operation in July 2021. He denied this and described it as “judicial rumours”.

He believed that it was “possible” to go to Ukraine after returning from Canada at the end of July. “The first thing is to go to Russia to try to help in some way, but I would like to go to both capitals,” he said.
