Pope to Attend Holy Week Services
According to Papal spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls, the Pope suffered no complications since his February 24 tracheostomy. More good news—he is expected to be released from the hospital in time to celebrate Holy Week festivities, which begin with Palm Sunday on March 20. According to the Associated Press via the Times of India:
… [D]octors have cautioned John Paul not to use his voice too much to ensure he makes a complete recovery.
"I think the Pope will be here for Holy Week, certainly," Navarro-Valls said.
