Pope Francis has a full schedule this week, with busy days in Rome and an international trip on his agenda.

On Monday, he will visit some Vatican dicasteries and meet with employees there. 

As he does every week, the Pope will hold his general audience in St. Peter's Square on Wednesday morning. Thousands of pilgrims are expected to attend.

On Thursday, June 4th, he will celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi. He will celebrate Mass at the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran and take part in a procession that leads to the Basilica of St. Mary Major.

The Chilean president Michelle Bachelet will visit Pope Francis at the Vatican on Friday.

The Pope will then head to Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina, on Saturday. A Pope has not visited that country since Pope John Paul II did so in 2003.

At noon on Sunday, June 7th, Pope Francis will pray the Angelus from the window of the Apostolic Palace. He will also meet with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and Argentina's president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.
