The Pope won't be presiding over the New Years Day Mass or Te Deum as the Holy Father is suffering from a "painful sciatica" and Cardinal Pietro Parolin will instead preside over the Mass.

If His Holiness is feeling pain from sciatica, i can identify with him. No matter what position you're in, none of them feel comfortable at all. I know he's being well taken care of and everything he will allow to make him feel more comfortable will be done. In my mind, I kind of see this man though as one that will not let the pain take over and in a way, I can hear my mother's words i heard so often as a child. "Offer your pain up for the poor souls in purgatory".

Although I cannot profess to even call myself Christian or a Catholic any longer, there is much about this man that I do admire and respect. I hope for a very speedy recovery.

For the Pope to miss the New Years Day Mass he must be in some sort of discomfort.

Today Pope Francis met with and congratulated members of La Spezia FC soccer team at the Vatican.

They had a few nice gifts for the Holy Father.
