POPE FRANCIS PRAYS AT TOMBS OF PREVIOUS PONTIFFS

(Vatican Radio) At 6 pm on the day the Church celebrates the Feast of All Souls, Pope Francis will go on a private visit to the Vatican Grottoes in Saint Peter's Basilica to pray by the tombs of the Roman Pontiffs who have preceded him as Successor of Peter. 
Already on Easter Monday this past year, Pope Francis had prayed by the tombs of twentieth century popes Benedict XV, Pius XI, Pius XII, Paul VI and John Paul I. A visit which was followed by a a moment of silent prayer in the Necropolis beneath the Basilica.Precisely in the Clementine Chapel, the place closest to the to tomb of Saint Peter.
