Pope delays start of his vacation

Catholic World News - July 06, 2011

Pope Benedict XVI has delayed the scheduled start of his vacation by a few days, to spend some extra time with his brother before departing for the summer papal residence at Castel Gandolfo.

The Holy Father had been scheduled to leave for Castel Gandolfo on Wednesday, July 6. But he chose to remain at the Vatican until his brother, Msgr. Georg Ratzinger, leaves for his own home in Regensburg.

The Pope's regular weekly audience for July 6, which was cancelled in anticipation that he would be moving, was not rescheduled.
