If you accessed the document from a website, (the Vatican website in English is a good source for Papal documents use the APA Referencing Guide instructions and examples for Web Resources.

Specifically, follow the example at the bottom of the page for PDF found on a website, or if the version you accessed was not a PDF but rather a webpage, follow the example at the top of the Web Resources page.  The in-text reference will be simply author, date, e.g. (Francis, 2013).
