Pope talks about knee pain at audience

STORY: Francis arrived in St. Peter's Square sitting in an open popemobile, which drove him to the rear of the platform facing the crowd.

The 85-year-old walked slowly while holding the arm of an aide, limping as he approached his seat about 11 yards away.

Members of the clergy then queued to greet the seated pontiff, who would usually stand for such an occasion.

During the Easter period, Francis attended at Masses in St. Peter's Basilica several times, but did not preside over them.
