Pope Francis hastily canceled one of his events on Friday, but the Vatican said there is no reason to be worried about his health. It was the third time in a month that the 77-year-old pontiff has scrapped an appearance because of illness. The Vatican said in a statement that he would not be celebrating Mass at a Rome hospital because of an "unexpected indisposition."
The Rev. Federico Lombardi, a Vatican spokesman, said the pope would keep the rest of his weekend appointments, including audiences on Saturday and a Mass on Sunday in St. Peter's Square, the Associated Press reported.
