LIVE: Pope Francis celebrates Corpus Christi in St. Peter's Basilica


Pope Francis is not celebrating Corpus Christi outside the Vatican, as he usually does. Instead, he will celebrate it at the Altar of the Chair of Peter in St. Peter's Basilica. About 50 people will be present.

The coronavirus pandemic has stopped the celebration of overly crowded Masses. In 2019, Pope Francis visited the Roman parish of St. Mary of Consolation.
