Pope’s sciatica forces schedule changes

Pope Francis has been forced to cancel three public appearances [1] scheduled for Sunday and Monday due to a recurrence of the nerve pain that struck him at the end of 2020. The Holy See press office announced that because of sciatica the 84-year-old pope would be unable to celebrate Mass marking the Sunday of the Word of God in St. Peter’s Basilica.
