Keep Holy the Sabbath, and While You're at it,Three weeks At Castel Gandolfo

I have been reading speculative articles about the Holy Father's health and schedule of late, and so when we are asked to pray at Mass for "Francis our Pope," be sure to focus, for he does keep what would be a grueling schedule for a much-younger, let alone a 77 year old man.

Should I vacation?
 According to John L Allen (who has good sources, and doesn’t make these things up): “Those close to the Pope say that if there’s a reason for concern, it’s not that anybody is hiding the truth about a secret illness but rather that Francis is simply wearing himself out. Holy Father, why not at least take your own advice?
