It will be a busy week for Pope Francis, but more than anything he'll be indoors, working on his coming trip to Africa.
On Monday November 16th, the Pope will start off his week by celebrating his early morning Mass in the Vatican's Casa Santa Marta.
Afterwards, at around 9: 30 a.m, the Pope will meet hold a meeting with heads of Vatican departments.
On Wednesday, Pope Francis will lead his general audience, along with thousands of pilgrims. His catechesis will most likely focus on ways to strengthen family life.
The very next day, on Thursday, the Vatican will hold a press conference to brief the press about the Pope's schedule in Africa. He plans to visit Kenya, Uganda and the Central African Republic, from November 25th to the 30th.
So throughout he will surely be putting the finishing touches on his speeches.
On Sunday November 22nd, the Pope will lead the Angelus from his studio window overlooking St. Peter's Square.
