LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - According to L'Osservatore Romano, the Pontiff chose 53-year-old Franciscan Father Giulio Michelini to lead Lenten meditations.

Fr. Michelini explained he would lead with St. Matthew's description of the passion, death and resurrection of Christ.


Pope Francis and higher level members of the Roman Curia will make their annual retreat to the Pauline Father's retreat center in Ariccia March 5-10.

The Lenten retreat will begin the evening of March 5 with Eucharistic adoration and vespers.

The following three days will include a 7:30 a.m. Mass, meditations led by Fr. Michelini at 9:30 a.m. and another meditation at 4 p.m.


Adoration and vespers will conclude each day until March 10, which will include an extra closing reflection from Fr. Michelini.

The Pontiff will not be conducting any public or private audiences during the Lenten retreat.
