During his visit to the Vatican in January, French President Francois Hollande, formally invited the Pope to France. The mayor of Lourdes also extended an invitation. It is likely that he will visit Lisieux, home of one of the Pope's favorite saints, St. Therese. The last Pontiff to visit France was Benedict XVI in 2008.
