US, WASHINGTON (NEWS OBSERVATORY) — Pope Francis will hold a traditional Sunday audience from the library of the Apostolic Palace, it will be broadcast on the Internet, the press service of the Holy See reports.
“The prayer will be broadcast live on the Vatican News (YouTube channel) and on screens on St. Peter’s Square and will be distributed by Vatican Media to the media, which will request this to enable believers to participate,” the statement said.
It is specified that the audience will be held “in the library hall of the Apostolic Palace, and not in the square from the window.”
Similar measures were taken for the next audience of the pontiff, which will be held on Wednesday, March 11.
They “are connected with the need to avoid the danger of the spread of the COVID-19 virus due to the influx of people at the control points at the entrance to the square,” the report says.
