Pope Francis foregoes traditional papal summer retreat


Vatican City, June 6 - In a break from papal
tradition, Pope Francis is foregoing the usual lengthy vacation
retreat to the lakeside summer residence Castelgondolfo, south
of Rome, the Vatican spokesman said on Thursday.
It was not his habit to take vacations when he was
archbishop of Buenos Aires either, said Vatican Spokesman Father
Federico Lombardi at the announcement of the Argentinian pope's
provisional summer agenda.
Lombardi clarified that the pope has no current plans to
leave his suite in the Vatican's Saint Martha's guesthouse,
where he took up residence rather than the more lavish and
spacious papal apartments.
The pope's general audiences of July 3, 10, 17 and 31 will
be suspended, however, and Francis will go to Castelgandolfo for
the recitation of the Angelus on Sunday, July 14.
