Day 9 Mass with Pope Francis
A day with Pope Francis!
|Papa Francesco's Blessing from the "Pope-mobile"|
Today, we had the wonderful and unexpected opportunity to attend Mass with the Holy Father in St. Peter's Square for the Feast Day of Ss. Peter and Paul! We arrived in time to have an excellent view and, at the end of Mass, were able to see the Holy Father from a close distance when he drove by and blessed us. It was very moving to be present with the Church in this liturgy in which the Holy Father blessed the Pallia of the new Metropolitan Archbishops.
