Earlier in August, there was concern about the health of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, but the Vatican said while the 93-year-old was ill, his condition wasn’t serious.

It seemed he fell ill after visiting his sick brother who then passed. What kind of impact did that have on the retired pope, and are we getting the full story from the Vatican?

Joining Currents News to talk more about the retired pontiff’s health is John Allen, the editor of Crux.
