It will be a busy week for Pope Francis. On Monday November 9th, the Pope will start off the week by leaving the Vatican for a bit as he heads to the Basilica of St. John Lateran. There he will lead the episcopal consecration of Rome's auxiliary Bishop, Msgr. Angelo de Donatis, starting at roughly 5 o' clock. 

On Tuesday morning, at about 8.00 a.m. the Pope will once again take a short trip. This time he will travel to Florence and Prato, as part of a pastoral visit, where he plans to meet with workers and entrepreneurs. 

Wednesday morning, St. Peter's Square will be packed, as thousands of pilgrims wait for the Pope to lead his weekly general audience, where he gives a brief catechesis, most likely on the family. 

On Thursday 12th,  just like every other weekday, the Pope will lead his early morning Mass in the Vatican's Casa Santa Marta. 

On Saturday all eyes will be on the Vatican, as  the Pope meets with the president of Iran. After their one on one meeting, the president will also meet with the Pope's diplomatic team. 

Throughout the week, the Pope will surely be getting things ready,  including his speeches,  for his upcoming trip to Africa, scheduled from November 25th to the 30th. The Pope plans to visit Kenya, Uganda, Central African Republic. 

On Sunday at noon,  the Pope will lead the Angelus prayer from his studio window overlooking St. Peter's Square, where thousands of pilgrims gather every week,  to pray along with the Pope. But he will also have yet another appointment. At about 4 o clock, he will visit the Lutheran Church in Rome.
