2014 Lenten Retreat of Pope Francis to take place in Albano
Pope Francis has decided that the Lenten Spiritual Exercises for the Roman Curia will be held in the “Casa del Divin Maestro” (House of the Divine Master) in Albano, which is run by the Pauline congregation.
The retreat will be led by Roman diocesan priest, Msgr. Angelo De Donatis. It will begin the evening of March 9th, a Sunday and run through Friday morning (14 March), which is the first week of Lent.
According to a statement from the Holy See Press Office, the objective is to be able to reside in a place silent and reserved, far from the place of daily work, in order to better concentrate on the Spiritual Exercises.
