Pope stays sitting at audience due to pain in leg

Sorry but my leg hurts, Francis tells Holy Land delegation

(ANSA) - ROME, JAN 17 - Pope Francis remained seated at an audience in the Vatican for a delegation from the Holy Land Monday saying he had a pain in his leg.
    "Sorry if I remain seated but my leg hurts" said the pontiff receiving a delegation from the Custody of the Holy Land on the 100th anniversary of their magazine The Holy Land.
    The pope remained sitting as he read his message to them.
    The Custody of the Holy Land (Latin: Custodia Terræ Sanctæ) is a custodian priory of the Order of Friars Minor in Jerusalem, founded as the Province of the Holy Land in 1217 by Saint Francis of Assisi, who had also founded the Franciscan Order in 1209. (ANSA).
