Pope Francis will preside over two major Jubilee of Mercy events during an eventful week at the Vatican.

On Tuesday, February 2nd, the Pope will celebrate Mass to mark the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord. It will take place in St. Peter's Basilica at 5:30 p.m.

The Jubilee for Consecrated Life will also be celebrated on Tuesday, which is the 20th World Day of Consecrated Life.

The Pope's weekly general audience will take place in St. Peter's Square on the morning of Wednesday, February 3rd. Thousands of pilgrims are expected to attend.

Pope Francis will reappear in St. Peter's Square on Saturday at noon to mark the Jubilee for Prayer Groups of Padre Pio, the Italian mystic who was canonized in 2002. His undecayed remains will also be on display at the Vatican for one week.

The week will end as it usually does, with Pope Francis leading the Angelus prayer from the window of his study in the Apostolic Palace.
