2016-07-25

The Pope has no more public appearances scheduled until his trip to Poland on July 27. On Monday and Tuesday, he will get ready for a busy five-day trip to John Paul II's homeland.

His flight is scheduled to land in Krakow on Wednesday at 4 p.m. local time. There, he will join hundreds of thousands of young people from every continent in the WYD celebration. The Pope will have four main activities with youth: the opening ceremony, the Stations of the Cross, the Saturday night prayer vigil, and the closing Mass on Sunday, where he will reveal the location of the next WYD.

The Pope has two other important events outside of WYD: he will visit Auschwitz on Friday morning and the Shrine of the Divine Mercy on Saturday. 

He will arrive in Rome at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 31. Pope Francis will then partially resume his normal schedule, including Wednesday general audiences with pilgrims.
