Pope's weekly schedule: General Audience and the Angelus

2016-08-08

The end of July and early August have been a busy time for Pope Francis, with trips to Poland and Assisi. As a result, the pope is easing back into part of his normal schedule.  

The Pope does not have anything specifically planned for Monday and Tuesday. 

On Wednesday, he will once again give his General Audience to pilgrims in Paul VI Audience Hall, starting at 9:30 a.m. 

The rest of the week will be relatively quiet, until he closes his week by praying the Angelus in St. Peter's Square at noon with those visiting the Vatican.

During these summer months, the pope devotes his time to preparing for upcoming meetings and important speeches, like Mother Teresa's canonization in September and the end of the Jubilee Year of Mercy
