Following Mass in St Peter's Basilica for deceased bishops and cardinals, Pope Francis went to the Teutonic cemetery for a moment of prayer and commemoration of the faithful departed.

Awaiting the Holy Father were the Sisters Handmaids of Christ the Priest, who take care of the Cemetery, with their Superior, the Rector of the Pontifical Teutonic College of Santa Maria in Camposanto, and the Vice Rector.

The Pope stopped in silent prayer, after having blessed the tombs kept there with the aspergillum. Immediately afterwards he returned to Casa Santa Marta.
