The Angelus on the Assumption
“Mary is full of grace. She is a sure refuge for us in times of temptation”. With this Tweet posted on @Pontifexon Thursday, 13 August, Pope Francis called for a climate of reflection on Mary, on the vigil of the Solemnity of the Assumption.
On the occasion of the Marian feast, at midday on Saturday, 15 August, the Pontiff will guide the recitation of the Angelus in St Peter’s Square. It marks a first: during the occasion in 2014, Francis was on a pastoral visit to Korea, while in 2013 he was at Castel Gandolfo to celebrate Mass and meet with employees of the Papal Villas. The appointment to pray with the faithful in St Peter’s Square will take place on Sunday the 16th noon as customary.
