ASHEVILLE, N.C. >> A spokesman for Billy Graham says the 93-year-old evangelist is being treated at a North Carolina hospital for bronchitis.

A joint statement today from Graham’s spokesman and Mission Hospital says Graham was admitted overnight for an infection in his lungs. The hospital is in Asheville, near his home in Montreat.

He is resting comfortably in stable condition.

Graham spokesman Larry Ross says the evangelist watched a television feed of his grandson, Will Graham, preaching this morning in Spartanburg, S.C. He ate lunch with his daughter, Gigi, and one of his grandchildren.

Graham was hospitalized for pneumonia last November. His staff says the evangelist’s health has been good since his release, though he remains at home due to age-related conditions. He is working on a manuscript for an upcoming book.
