Pope Francis skips Good Friday event to preserve health ahead of Easter, raising concerns about his frail condition

Pope Francis decided to skip the traditional Good Friday procession at Rome's Colosseum to protect his health, as announced by the Vatican. This last-minute decision has sparked concerns about his frail condition, especially amidst a busy liturgical period. The 87-year-old Pope, who has battled respiratory issues all winter, had a portion of one lung removed in the past and has faced other health challenges. Despite his absence at the event, Francis is expected to preside over upcoming Easter Vigil and Mass, as well as deliver his 'Urbi et Orbi' speech addressing global crises.
