Pope Francis looks healthier during his weekly audience

Pope Francis, who has faced recent health challenges, appeared stronger on Wednesday as he prepared for a busy Easter week schedule. Despite suffering from bronchitis and influenza, the 87-year-old pontiff was able to read out his prepared texts at his weekly audience, showing more vitality than in recent audiences where an aide had taken on most of the readings.

Despite his limited mobility and recent health issues, Francis arrived at the audience hall with a cane instead of a wheelchair. He seemed in good spirits as he addressed the faithful, acknowledging the last-minute change of venue due to rainy weather. While concerns about his health remain, it is clear that Pope Francis is determined to fulfill his duties and continue serving the Catholic community.

Pope Francis’s health concerns were highlighted when he missed his homily at a Palm Sunday service a few days prior. However, he is expected to lead several important services leading up to Easter Sunday, including a ritual at a women’s prison on Thursday. Easter is a significant event in the Christian calendar, marking the resurrection of Jesus.

During his appeals for peace in Ukraine and the Middle East, Francis met with two men who had both lost daughters in the Israel-Hamas conflict. It was evident that despite these challenges and difficulties that Pope Francis continues to carry out his duties with courage and determination.
