.- On the morning of March 1, Pope Francis resumed his usual commitments, after suspending his visit to the Roman Seminary the day before due to a mild fever.

The Press Office of the Holy See reported that after resting, the Holy Father decided to continue with his agenda for the morning in the Vatican, meeting with the Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, Cardinal Marc Ouellet.

Later, the Pope received the Prime Minister of Romania, Victor Viorel Ponta, who arrived at the Vatican accompanied by his wife and a delegation, and later the Ambassador of Chile to the Holy See.

By late morning, the Holy Father received the bishops who are part of the Spanish Episcopal Conference. They are in Rome from Feb. 24 to March 8 on their first visit “ad Limina Apostolorum” meeting with the Argentine Pontiff.

In the afternoon, Pope Francis is scheduled to receive the Catholic writer and political scientist George Weigel of the United State, author of the bestseller “Witness to Hope.”  The book is a biography of Blessed John Paul II, who will be canonized on April 27, the feast of Divine Mercy, along with Blessed John XXIII, in St. Peter's Square.
