2014-11-03

Accompanied by several cardinals, Pope Francis visited the Vatican Grotto to pray for the souls of the deceased Pontiffs.

The Pope continued the tradition of visiting the tombs of his predecessors on November 2, the day in which the Church commemorates the Solemnity of All Souls. 

He first prayed in front of the tomb of St. Peter and then recited a prayer for the deceased. The Vatican Grotto is located underneath the altar of St. Peter's Basilica. 

Pope Francis prayed in front of the tombs of Benedict XV, Pius XI, Pius XII, Blessed Paul VI and John Paul I.
