The holidays will look a little different at the Vatican this year. Pope Francis is making some changes due to COVID-19. He's ending general audiences and will limit Christmas participation. That's because of a new surge of Coronavirus cases in Italy. 

Last week, an attendee at a Vatican event was confirmed to have the virus. The Pope will go back to live streaming his weekly lessons as he did when the Vatican was under COVID-19 lock down in the spring and summer.
