Today at St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis held a General Audience and spoke regarding the parable of the beggar Lazarus (full text, full video, summary video). As well, he greeted various pilgrims present, and received the gift of a marzipan cart in the shape of a migrant boat from a delegation of the Archdiocese of Agrigento. Also here’s a nice video about Pope Francis meeting a rescue dog during the audience.
Today Pope Francis attended the funeral mass for Cardinal Giovanni Coppa at which he presided over the rite of Last Commendatio and Valedictio.
Also, he made some appointments, sent a tweet:
The Jubilee is the party to which Jesus invites us all, without excluding anyone. (link)

And that’s the Pope Francis news for the day!
