Vatican Preps for Conclave as ‘Pope Is Dying’

Gizzi cites Vatican sources, including “the secretary of one of the most powerful Vatican cardinals.”
In fact, the pope underwent surgery due to the ailments of diverticulitis, a disorder of the colon wall, in July, and it also appears that at nearly 85 years of age, he “is physically and perhaps mentally not well,” Gizzi adds.
“Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.” Rev. 13:11
“There is a very significant detail that many in these hours underestimate, ignore or manipulate: the disease that has struck Pope Francis is severe and degenerative. It could also be chronic,” Luis Badiolla Morales, who is close to Francis and has good contacts, shared in those days.
Gizi added that Vatican officials are already in “pre-conclave mode” and preparing the logistics for Francis’ passing.
Because of that surgery he remained confined in a hospital in Rome for 10 days, and although officially it was not mentioned that he had cancer, for some his ailment is much greater than what has been reported.
