Pope Francis uses a cane rather than a wheelchair to enter his General Audience

With the end of his summer vacation and his return from Canada, Pope Francis begins to hold his General Audiences again. This time, he entered from the back of the Paul VI Audience Hall using a cane instead of a wheelchair as he had done during his papal trip to Canada.

Pope Francis did not stop to greet attendees in the center aisle, something he used to do before his knee problems.
