However the Mass of Pentecost earlier that morning will be in St. Peter’s without the faithful.
Police will be on hand to guarantee safe access, taking care the faithful respect the necessary social distancing measures, the Vatican reported.
It was March 8 that the pope began praying the Angelus and giving the catechesis of the Wednesday General Audiences connected by live stream from the Library of the Apostolic Palace.
Since then, Pope Francis has concluded the Angelus/Regina Caeli prayer by looking out from the window of his private study onto a near empty St Peter’s Square. Last Sunday, for the first time since the Coronavirus lockdown, there were a small number of faithful allowed in the Square.
Mass for the solemnity of Pentecost will be at 10 am local time.
