This week, the Pope's schedule will start getting back to normal, as his summer break comes to a close.
On Monday August 31st, the Pope doesn't have any public audiences scheduled, but-just as he's done the entire month, he will probably continue to prepare for this coming trip to Cuba and the U.S in late September.
On Tuesday, September 1st, the Pope will resume his public early morning Mass in the Vatican's Casa Santa Marta chapel, along with pilgrims.
In the afternoon, the Pope will mark the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, by leading a liturgical celebration at 5 o clock in St. Peter's Basilica.
On Wednesday, September 2nd, he will lead his weekly general audience. Now that Rome's heat isn't as intense as before, it will take place outdoors, in St. Peter's Square.
On Sunday, September 6th, the Pope will lead the Angelus prayer at noon, from his studio window, overlooking St. Peter's Square.
