Our group went to a papal audience this morning.  The pilgrims and about 30,000 friends went to hear Pope Francis’ Wednesday address.  This photo was taken by a colleague as the Pope was driving around the square.  The picture only captures a sense of the warmth and holiness he presents.

He spoke in Italian, followed by translations in many languages.  While simultaneous translation might have been more efficient, hearing the address in so many languages, evoked a strong sense of the universality of the Church.

Pace e bene
