Pope John Paul II is scheduled to celebrate mass and beatify three people in Loreto, home to the renowned shrine, which is believed to contain within its walls the house of the Holy Family.
The Pope will make his day trip from Castel Gandolfo to Loreto by helicopter Sept. 5. During the 10 a.m. mass, he will beatify Fr. Pedro Tarres Y Claret, Alberto Marvelli and Pina Suriano. The Pope is scheduled to give the homily.
Following the noon Angelus, the pontiff will visit the Pope John Paul II Youth Center, where he will have lunch and rest before returning to Castel Gandolfo.
