The Pope was assisted in reading his prepared remarks for the Dec. 3 Sunday Angelus by his aide, Msgr. Paolo Braida.
The Holy Father, for the second consecutive Sunday, was assisted by an aide in praying the Angelus, as he continues to recover from an acute bronchial infection. Francis closed the broadcast by wishing the nearly 20,000 faithful present in the piazza and those watching the broadcast, ‘I wish everyone a happy Sunday and a happy Advent journey.’
