"The Church is most truly itself in the liturgy, as it is the place where God comes to us and enters our lives.  Let us remember that the liturgy is celebrated for God, not for us; it is His work; He is its subject.”

During the general audience, the Pope asked for everyone's prayers as he gets ready to visit the Italian town of Loreto. On Thursday, October 4th, the Pope will visit the town, to pray for the upcoming Year of Faith and the Synod of Bishops on the New Evangelization.

"I ask you to join me in  prayer to entrust to the Mother of God, these major Church events we will experience: the Year of Faith and the Synod of Bishops on the new evangelization.”

Among the thousands of people attending the general audience, there was one who saw it from the dome of St. Peter's Basilica. A lone protester, who walked into the Vatican as a tourist on Tuesday afternoon, spent the night on the dome to speak out against Italian tax reforms.
