Vatican City, Feb 3, 2021 / 09:00 am
Pope Francis will speak to a live audience once again as his weekly Angelus address moves back to St. Peter's Square on Sunday after a seven-week absence.
The pope leads the traditional Marian prayer from the Vatican every Sunday at noon local time -- usually from a window overlooking the square, which is filled with people who come to hear him.
But since Rome was again put under stricter coronavirus regulations at the end of December and through January, the pope's address moved indoors to a live-stream format.
While Rome was designated a "red zone" and then an "orange zone," Francis led the Angelus via live video from his library in the Apostolic Palace.
