2016-06-27

This week welcomes the month of July, which is usually the calmest month for the Pope; this year will be the exception due to the WYD celebration in Krakow.

For now, Pope Francis usual daily masses at Casa Santa Marta will not resume until September.
 
However, the last days of June will be intense for the Pope.

On Tuesday, Benedict XVI will celebrate 65 years of priesthood. Pope Francis and the Pope Emeritus will once again share a public event in the Clementine Hall of the Vatican. At noon, Ratzinger will receive a book on the priesthood.

On Wednesday, June 29th, the Pope will celebrate mass for the feast of St. Peter and St. Paul, patrons of Rome. Mass will start at 9:30 am, in St. Peter's Basilica. There, as usual, Pope Francis will give the newly appointed archbishops a pallium, a wool scarf pinned on the left shoulder that symbolizes the lamb on the shoulders of the Good Shepherd.
At noon, on Wednesday and after the Mass, the Pope will pray the Angelus.

On Thursday, Pope Francis has scheduled an audience for the extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, the last one before summer.

The Pope's week will culminate on Sunday, July 3rd with the Angelus prayer from the window of the Apostolic Palace.
