Catholic pontiff, Pope Francis, on Saturday, hinted on stepping down from his position.
Pope Francis said he needed to slow down because he could no longer withstand the hectic schedule of international travels.
He disclosed this to journalists after a six-day Canada trip.
Pope Francis, who is suffering from knee pain, said he is considering stepping down due to his health issues.
“I don’t think I can go at the same pace as I used to travel.
“I think that at my age and with this knee limitation, I have to save myself a little bit to be able to serve the Church. Or, alternatively, to think about the possibility of stepping aside,” he said.
