Francis avoids the embarrassment of an anniversary without faithful

Francis: Jubilee Behind Closed Doors

A Eucharist will be presided over behind closed doors in the Domus Santa Marta chapel on Monday 13 March at 8am with all the cardinals present in Rome to mark the tenth anniversary of Francis' pontificate.

Specola (, March 11) comments: "The risk of an empty square or basilica weighs heavily. That a Pope as 'popular' as Francis celebrates his tenth anniversary behind closed doors says it all".
