Well that was incredibly cool. Thousands of people gathering in St Peters Square to hear the successor to St Peter -Pope Benedict XVI give a teaching and impart his apostolic blessing on us and any religious items we wished.
What was really touching was hearing the Pope greet all the pilgrims, groups, schools, etc. welcoming them in their own language. It took close to 2 hours but was beautiful
Here’s something I purchased which was blessed by His Holiness And some pics from the audience. Off to the Collesium
