Today Pope Francis is visiting Assisi to celebrate the Feast Day of that saint whose name he assumed upon his papal election. His one-day visit will be a busy one, including speeches at charitable organizations such as the Serafico Institute and Caritas, a meeting at the archbishop's residence, and a veneration at the tomb of Saint Francis.
