LIVE: Pope Francis prays before the tomb of Primo Mazzolari

Pope Francis visits Bozzolo, the location where priest Primo Mazzolari is buried (1890-1959). He will pray before his grave, and then depart for Barbiana to pray before the tomb of another priest, Lorenzo Milani.

It will be a brief visit. The pope plans to land by helicopter at 9:00 a.m. and leave Bozzolo at 10:30. Approximately 15,000 people are expected to travel to this small town to accompany Pope Francis.
