General Audience of 2 September 2020
On Wednesday 2.9. after half a year, a general audience was held again, in which we also participated. It took place in the main courtyard of the Apostolic Palace, bearing the name of the Holy Pope Damasus (305-384). We climbed this square up the stairs to the level of the 2nd floor. Here begin the official visits of state officials, ambassadors, bishops coming ad limina apostolorum, and pass through here participants of special papal audiences held in one of the halls of the Apostolic Palace. Every year, on May 6, new recruits from the Swiss Guard take the oath here.
Pope Francis arrived in the square in a car and immediately walked among the believers present, of whom there were a few hundred – equipped with mask – to greet them from a distance of 2 meters. General audiences should take place again every Wednesday.
