This week, we will be seeing the Pope less than usual. Pope Francis has retired with his main collaborators of the Roman Curia for a few days of spiritual exercises. It is in a house run by religious, just about 25 miles from the Vatican.

He will return to Rome on Friday, March 11th to resume his normal work schedule.

There will not be a general audience on Wednesday. However, on Saturday, March 12th, he will have a  Jubilee Audience for all the pilgrims who are in Rome.

On Sunday, he will pray the Angelus from the window of the Apostolic Palace, which looks out toward St. Peter's Square.
