It's been over 20 years since a Pope had visited a Roman cemetery. But that streak ends with Pope Francis. He will resume this tradition to celebrate All Saints Day.
The Pope is expected to celebrate Mass on Friday at the Campo Verano Cemetery. Once finished, he will then pray for a few moments and bless the tombs of all people buried there.
On Saturday, Pope Francis will also visit another cemetery, the one of his predecessors. This is more commonly known as the Vatican Grotto, where many Popes, including St. Peter himself, are buried.
Since November is a month the Church dedicated to those who have died, on Monday, Pope Francis will celebrate Mass in honor of all bishops and cardinals that have passed awaythis past year. It will take place inside St. Peter's Basilica.
