POPE FRANCIS IN MILAN 25/03/2017 – Saturday 25th March, 2017 Pope Francis will visit Milan, Italy
The Holy See Press Office confirmed that Pope Francis will visit two prominent northern Italian cities, Milan and Monza, in march 2017.
First, on March 25, the Pope will visit Milan. Cardinal Scola, Archbishop of Milan, announced the Pope’s visit saying: “this is a sign of the Holy Father’s affection and esteem for the Ambrosian Church, the city of Milan and the whole of Lombardy.” “We want to show our gratitude to the Pope because he will come to confirm us in the faith,” he added.
Pope Francis will also visit the Archdiocese of Genoa on 27 May, whose Archbishop is Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, President of the Italian Episcopal Conference. Like Milan, the visit to Genoa had already been planned for an earlier date, but was postponed due to the Pope’s numerous commitments for the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. The Pope’s visit will coincide with the 380th anniversary of Mary Queen of Genoa, a title given to the Blessed Virgin Mary in 1637.
