Pope's holiday plans

Pope Francis/Rome Reports

It's summer in Rome and the Pope also takes time off to go on holiday...in his own way. His vacation is, in fact, just a more relaxed period of public activity, according to Rome Reports.

The Pope is still working from Casa Santa Marta.

His schedule has not changed. He still wakes up at five in the morning. However, Pope Francis will use these weeks to focus more on reading, prayer, and study. He will probably also prepare several speeches for his next trips.

Wednesday general audiences will not be celebrated throughout the month of July. However, Pope Francis will say the Angelus prayer from his window in the Apostolic Palace.

He will receive visits and groups in the Vatican but his schedule will not be as intense as it is the rest of the year.
