The “pastor of presidents” and world renowned evangelist Billy Graham was admitted to the hospital Wednesday morning for pneumonia and pulmonary treatment.

He is said to be resting comfortably at Mission Hospital in Asheville, N.C., where he was admitted after having trouble breathing.

A spokesman for Graham said the 92-year-old evangelist had been put on a course of antibiotics and that doctors did not believe his condition to be life-threatening.

“He had a slight fever and experienced difficulty breathing, but he was never in any distress or in an acute situation,” said spokesperson Larry Ross.

Graham’s primary physician, Dr. Lucian Rice, said in a statement released by the hospital: “He is resting comfortably and is fully alert.”

Dr. Shaw Henderson also confirmed that “he is clinically stable at this time.”
