Pope Francis is preparing for his coming trip to Cuba and the U.S., in late September, so his public events are somewhat limited this summer.
Even though the Vatican's schedule is not completely up to speed just yet, the Pope does have a few public events.
On Wednesday August 26th, at about 10 a.m, Pope Francis will lead his weekly general audience from the Vatican's Paul VI Hall. It's held indoors and not in St. Peter's Square, to escape Rome's intense summer heat.
Then, on Sunday August 30th, the Pope will pray the Angelus from his studio window overlooking St. Peter's Square, where thousands of pilgrims gather each week to pray along with him.
Once August is over, the Pope will resume his regular schedule, which includes celebrating a public morning Mass every weekday, in the Vatican's Casa Santa Marta.
