Transcript for Pope Francis Back at Work After Suddenly Canceling a Scheduled Mass
At the Vatican today, pope Francis was back at work, a day after suddenly canceling a scheduled mass that caused many people to be concerned about his health and wondering if the pope, always on the go, should slow down a bit. ABC's Alex Marquardt at the Vatican tonight with that story. Reporter: It was a smiling but visibly tired pope who resumed his packed schedule today, coughing and speaking softly during a shorter than usual ten-minute audience with a visiting president. Fears were raised yesterday when, at the last minute, 77-year-old pope Francis canceled an event at a hospital. The Vatican said the pope is fatigued but said there are no concerns for his health. Since being elected last year, pope Francis has become known for his relentless pace, most recently on display during a visit to the holy land. Advisers are encouraging him to slow down. Maybe there's some wisdom in that. But this doesn't seem to be a pope who is on the verge of stopping. Reporter: Pope Francis has famously said that he doesn't take vacations but he will be taking it a bit easier this summer. And all eyes will be on the pope tomorrow as he celebrates a special mass right here in St. Peters basilica. Rebecca? Alex Marquardt, thank you.
