Pope Francis skips readings at audience, says he still has a cold

VATICAN CITY, Feb 28 : Pope Francis skipped readings at his Wednesday weekly audience, delegating the task to an aide and telling the faithful he was still not well.
The 87-year-old pontiff, who has had a number of health issues recently, had canceled appointments on Saturday and on Monday due to what the Vatican called a mild flu.
On Sunday, however, he addressed crowds in St. Peter’s Square as normal, to deliver his Angelus message.
