The Pope's schedule is in full gear after a quiet week long retreat. On Monday, he will resume daily Masses at Casa Santa Marta at 7:00 pm, local Rome time.

On Tuesday, he will participate in a regular session to convene the canonization of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, the Argentine priest, Jose Gabriel Brochero and the Mexican boy Jose Sanchez del Río.

On Wednesday morning, Pope Francis will have his usual general audience in St. Peter's Square before thousands of pilgrims.

On Saturday, the Feast day of Saint Joseph, marks the three years since the official start of Pope Francis' pontificate.

In coinciding with his anniversary as pontiff, he will probably sign an apostolic exhortation on the family in containing the conclusions of the recent Synod of last year.

The week will end entering fully into the Holy Week with Palm Sunday. At 10:00 am, the Pope will bless the palms in Saint Peter's. After the Mass, he will pray the Angelus with the pilgrims.
