Pope to visit patients, staff of Gemelli hospital

Catholic World News - May 05, 2014

Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s Secretary of State, has paid tribute to the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, which is located in Milan, on the occasion of the 90th annual University Day.

In a letter to Cardinal Angelo Scola of Milan, Cardinal Parolin said that the university combines “scientific rigor and fidelity to the teaching of the Church” and praised its commitment to youth.

Cardinal Parolin also said that Pope Francis has accepted an invitation to visit the patients and staff of the university’s Agostino Gemelli University Polyclinic, the university’s teaching hospital in Rome. No date has been announced for the visit to the hospital, where St. John Paul II was hospitalized several times during his pontificate.
