CWN Editor's Note: “As you can see, I am still alive,” Pope Francis said jokingly to health-care professionals at a November 30 private audience.

The Pope said that he is gradually recovering from “a very acute, infectious bronchitis.” He explained that doctors told him not to make his scheduled trip to Dubai this weekend because the dramatic changes in temperature—from outdoor heat to air-conditioned rooms—would hamper his recovery.

In brief remarks at the audience, the Pope paid tribute to health-care workers who are “not only looking for medical, pharmacological solutions, but also caring for health.”
