Pope Francis sends message to Cristina Kirchner

Pope Francis sent a telegram to Argentinian President, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. In it, he assures her, he's praying for her quick recovery.

The 60 year old president underwent surgery on Tuesday to remove a blood clot between her brain and skull

In his message, the Pope says he "ensures his presence through prayerâ? and that he asks "the Virgin Mary, Our Lady of Luján, to bestow strengthâ? upon her.

Pope Francis also stated that her family and doctors are also in his prayers so that "the Lord casts His light upon their decisions.�

He finishes his message by saying that he hopes that she can soon "return to her daily responsibilities.�
