Pope Francis

There was no Papal Audience on Wednesday this week because it was the Feast of the Assumption (it is at these weekly Audiences that Pope Francis has been giving the Catechesis on the 10 Commandments that we have been featuring) but during the day, Pope Francis prayed with pilgrims gathered in St Peter's Square, asking them to pray for the 39 victims of the road bridge collapse in the northern Italian city of Genoa and their families.
