Visiting anew

The Holy Father left Rome yesterday and travelled to France where he will be present for four days to mark the 150th Anniversary of the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin at Lourdes. This apostolic journey is his first to France so he met with government dignitaries upon his arrival yesterday. In addition, he met with young people last night in front of Notre-Dame Cathedral.

Today, his visits will include the Institut de France, Mass at the Esplanade des Invalides (Paris) and a torchlight procession in Rosary Square in Lourdes.

A full list of the various meetings and encounters during the Holy Father's visit to France is posted on the Vatican website.
