Global News published this video item, entitled “Pope Francis prays for Yemen in New Year’s message” – below is their description.
Pope Francis reappeared on Friday after chronic sciatic pain forced him to miss New Year’s celebrations, making no mention of his ailment as he delivered his traditional appeal for world peace.
The pope had to skip services on Thursday and again on Friday morning because of a return of sciatica — a relatively common health problem that causes pain along the sciatic nerve down the lower back and legs.
“The painful events that marked humanity’s journey last year, especially the pandemic, taught us how much it is necessary to take an interest in the problems of others and to share their concerns,” he said.
Francis highlighted, in particular, his worries about Yemen, which has been blighted by six years of violence that has pitted a Saudi-led coalition against the Iran-aligned Houthis movement.
