Updated: Aug 1, 2022
The pontiff said that he had to slow down because he could no longer handle the demanding schedule of international travel at a news conference following a six-day trip to Canada, citing health issues.
Pope Francis, who has knee trouble, stated that he was thinking about resigning due to his health issues. He admitted in his remark that "I don't think I can move at the same pace I used to travel."
