VATICAN CITY — Since Pope Francis won’t make it to California for the canonization of its great evangelizer, he will join a celebration at Rome’s American seminary to honor the soon-to-be saint and encourage devotion to him.

The Holy Father will be the guest of honor at a May 2 day of prayer and reflection on the life of Blessed Junípero Serra, set to be held at the Pontifical North American College, according to the program sent out with invitations to the event.
