Pope Francis is using a wheelchair to protect his injured knee.
The 85-year-old head of the Catholic Church was pushed by a Vatican employee to an audience with nuns on Thursday.
The Pontiff said recently that his doctors had told him to rest his painful right knee.
He has been seen hobbling in recent weeks and had to cancel some events.
According to information from the Vatican, the Pope may have to again use a wheelchair from time to time in the future, but his upcoming appointments will take place as planned.
In an interview this week with Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, Pope Francis said that he was suffering from a ligament injury in his knee and would need a small injection.
According to media reports, the injection took place on Tuesday.
Born Jorge Mario Bergoglio 85 years ago, he was elected Pope on 13th March 2013, on the second day of the 2013 Papal conclave. He then took the Papal name, Francis.
