Pope Francis typically receives his Wednesday General Audience weekly around 10 or 10:30 am Rome time from his private study inside the Vatican’s Apostolic Library. His address typically lasts around an hour and a half.

They also confirmed Pope Francis would resume his weekly livestreams from within the Vatican rather than from the window overlooking Saint Peter’s Square because of coronavirus on the 5th of August.

Pope Francis will continue to give Sunday Angelus blessings however.
