On Saturday September 13, Pope Francis will travel to Fogliano Redipuglia, in northeastern Italy. The aim of this three-hour visit is to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. 

The Pope will take an 8 AM flight from Rome's Ciampino airport. At 9:15, he will pray alone in a cemetery where 14,000 Austro-Hungarian soldiers killed in the Great War are buried. He will also leave a bouquet of flowers at a monument dedicated to their memory. 

At 10 AM, he will celebrate Mass in the "Sacrario di Redipuglia". This monumental cemetery is the resting place of more than 100,000 Italian soldiers who died during the First World War. 

At the end of the Mass, Pope Francis will pray for the fallen and victims of all wars. He will also give a lantern to a group of bishops and military personnel. It will be lit for every commemoration of the First World War. Pope Francis will return to Rome at 12:50 PM.
