Pope's weekly schedule: hustle and bustle as the Jubilee Year comes to an end

2016-11-07

The Jubilee of Mercy is coming to an end, which means Pope Francis' schedule will be more packed than usual with special events. 

After his trip to Sweden, and the feasts of All Saints' and All Souls', Pope Francis resumes his Masses at Casa Santa Marta.

On Wednesday, the pope will celebrate his weekly General Audience with pilgrims from all around the world convened in Rome. 

On Thursday, he will hold several meetings at the Vatican. 

The last Jubilee of the year, on Friday, will be dedicated to people that have suffered or suffer from poverty. They will meet with Pope Francis at Paul VI Audience Hall. Pope Francis will hear the stories of some of them.

On Saturday, at 10 a.m., the Pope will have the last Jubilee Audience of this Holy Year. On Sunday, also at 10, at St. Peter's, Pope Francis will celebrate Mass to conclude the Jubilee for the poor and will also lead the Angelus prayer.

The end of the Jubilee is very near, and it is expected that the Eternal City will be teeming with pilgrims looking to cross the Holy Doors before they close.
