Pope Francis Opts to Forego Palm Sunday Homily Amid Health Concerns

Pope Francis Opts to Forego Palm Sunday Homily Amid Health Concerns

In a departure from tradition, Pope Francis chose not to deliver his homily during a Palm Sunday Mass held in St. Peter’s Square, where tens of thousands of worshippers had gathered. Despite this deviation, the Pontiff continued to preside over the service.

The decision not to deliver the homily comes amidst concerns about the Pope’s health, as the 87-year-old has been battling bouts of bronchitis and influenza in recent weeks. While he has previously delegated an aide to read his addresses, on this occasion, his prepared text was omitted entirely.

This departure from the usual practice of delivering a homily at such a significant event as Palm Sunday is highly unusual and has prompted speculation about the Pope’s health and well-being. Nevertheless, Pope Francis remained present and engaged in the Mass, underscoring his commitment to his pastoral duties despite any health challenges he may be facing.
