How Sick is Francis and is he a "Lame Duck" with "Power Struggles" in the Vatican?

Vatican expert John L. Allen Jr. appears to be sending mixed signals on how sick Francis is:

"On August 19, 1914, for example, L’Osservatore Romano, the official Vatican newspaper, published a stinging editorial denouncing unnamed commentators who had suggested the previous day that Pope Pius X had a cold."

"Less than twenty-four hours later, Pius X was dead."

"Historically, the most reliable way to destabilize a monarchy, whether of the secular or ecclesiastical sort, is to suggest that the king is ill. Traditionally, therefore, the Vatican is extremely reluctant to acknowledge that a pope is ill, fearing that it will induce a fin de régime scramble for power and turn the sitting pope into a lame duck."

"No of this is to suggest there’s any reason to think that Pope Francis is seriously ill, or that the Vatican’s explanation of a 'light cold' isn’t correct."

"'For one thing, the Vatican was recently on the verge of a full-blown health scare around Pope Francis, as he cancelled a series of events due to what’s been described as just a 'light cold.' Under normal circumstances, such reassurances would only hold for so long."

"... Really, the Vatican could have saved itself the grief and just put out one consolidated statement as follows: 'Right now we’re in disarray, rife with power struggles, and one of the things we’re fighting over is control of human resources.'”

"Because make no mistake, that’s precisely what the flip-flop on a “General Directorate for Personnel” reveals."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
