Prayers for our Pope Emeritus

I just read that the Spanish paper El Mundo is reporting that Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI's has health problems that are "very severe" and that "we won't have him with us much longer."  

Let's keep him in prayer.  

UPDATE: The papal spokesman says that Pope Emeritus Benedict does not have a serious illness.  Of course, one does not have to have a serious illness to have declining health, so it is not clear if Fr. Lombardi's words are entirely denying the report from El Mundo.  Regardless, we have all seen how different our last Holy Father looks now from the picture at left, which I took in 2006.  Consequently, whether or not he now has a "very severe" condition, this is still a good reminder to keep him in our prayers.
