Pope's schedule: He meets with Italian President, Sergio Mattarella

After celebrating Pentecost Sunday, Pope Francis kicks off the week with his daily Masses at Casa Santa Marta. ; He will then hold the General Audience on Wednesday morning with pilgrims who have come to Rome from all over the world. He will likely continue his catechesis on hope, which has been going on for a couple months now. ; On Saturday, Pope Francis will return Italian President, Sergio Mattarella's visit to the Vatican by visiting the Quirinale palace in Rome. The two originally met June 18, 2015, so it will almost be exactly two years since this visit. Sunday morning he will pray the Angelus from the Apostolic Palace with everyone gathered in St. Peter's Square. It will be the first Angelus prayer since before Easter, because the Regina Coeli is traditionally prayed on Sunday's until Pentecost. ; MB RR -F -PR Up:JC
