(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis and members of the Vatican Curia arrived on Sunday evening at the "Casa del Divin Maestro,” a retreat centre in Ariccia, located about 25 miles from Rome. They are taking part in the week-long Curial Spiritual Exercises.

Usually conducted during the first week of Lent, the exercises were postponed this year due to the Papal Voyage to Mexico.

Each day will include moments of prayer, meditation, and Eucharistic adoration. The spiritual exercises will be led by noted Italian author, Father Ermes Ronchi.

The participants will return to the Vatican on Friday.
