Catholic pontiff, Pope Francis, has hinted at stepping down from his position.

He made this known on Saturday, after a visit to Canada, to apologise for the Catholic Church’s role in schools where indigenous children were abused.

According to Bellnews Online, for the past few months, the pope has been using a wheelchair, cane, or walker because of knee pain caused by a fracture and inflamed ligament.

Pope Francis said he needed to slow down because he could no longer withstand the hectic schedule of international travels.

He said: “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.

“Up until today, I did not use that door. I did not think it was necessary to think of this possibility but that does not mean that the day after tomorrow I don’t start thinking about it.”
