The press service of the American Archdiocese of the Patriarchate of Constantinople reported that the priest is ready to continue the visit.
Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, hospitalized in the U.S. capital on Sunday, has been discharged from the hospital. As the press service of the American Archdiocese of the Patriarchate of Constantinople reported on Monday, the 81-year-old cleric is ready to continue the visit.
“We are pleased to announce that our spiritual father, His Holiness, has just been discharged from the hospital. He feels well and is ready to continue the apostolic visit,” the press service noted.
As White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said earlier, the patriarch will meet with U.S. President Joe Biden at the White House on Monday.
81-year-old Patriarch Bartholomew arrived in the United States on October 23. On Sunday, according to the Archdiocese, he felt unwell due to a long flight and a busy schedule. As a precaution, the patriarch was taken to the George Washington University Hospital. He is expected to stay in the U.S. until November 3.
