Pope to preside over Jubilee Masses for prisoners and the homeless

The Vatican has released the Pope’s schedule of events for the last three months of 2016

The last three months of the Year of Mercy include Jubilee celebrations for the imprisoned and for homeless people.

Releasing a schedule of liturgical celebrations over which Pope Francis will preside, the Vatican included Holy Year Masses for prisoners on November 6 and for the homeless on November 13.

The schedule, released by the Vatican, also mentions his planned trips to Georgia and Azerbaijan from September 30 – October 2, and to Sweden on October 31 – November 1 to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

The Pope also will preside over Mass with canonisations in St Peter’s Square on October 16, World Mission Sunday.

The Pope will declare six men and one woman saints, including the Argentine “gaucho priest”, Blessed Jose Gabriel del Rosario Brochero, and Blessed Jose Sanchez del Rio, a 14-year-old Mexican boy martyred for refusing to renounce his faith during the Cristero War of the 1920s.

The calendar also includes:

— September 25: Jubilee Mass in St Peter’s Square for catechists.
— October 8: Jubilee Prayer Vigil in St. Peter’s Square with delegations from Marian shrines around the world.
— October 9: Jubilee Mass in St Peter’s Square in honor of Mary.
— November 4: Memorial Mass in St Peter’s Basilica for bishops and cardinals who have died in the past year.
— November 20: Mass in St Peter’s Basilica for the closing of the Holy Year of Mercy.
