Doctors for Pope Francis have recommended he use a wheelchair and cane for his bad knee, but the Holy Father recently said the best treatment for his knee pain is a shot of tequila.
Francis, 85, made the statement while riding in the popemobile around St. Peter’s Square in Rome, according to a report.
A group of Mexican seminarians asked how his knee was doing, and Francis said it was "capricious."

The seminarians lauded Francis for handling the pain, and he then let the future priests in on his secret.
"Do you know what I need for my knee?" Francis said. "Some tequila."
The seminarians reportedly found the remark hilarious and promised to deliver Francis a bottle.
Francis has endured right knee pain due to strained ligaments, but sources close to him say he is doing "better than ever" and performing physiotherapy daily, according to the report.
"He's in very good health and the same lucid reflection as always," a member of the clergy from Argentina said after meeting with Francis.

"[There's] a problem in one of his knees, but every day, he has more than two hours of rehabilitation, which is producing results. For everything else, he's better than ever."
