As the Pope made his way through St. Peter´s
Square, a group of priests and seminarians from the
Legionaries of Christ, asked the Pope for a special
blessing as it gets ready to leave Rome to serve
as missionaries. Moments later, the group gave Pope Francis
an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Patroness
of the Americas. The Pope was happy to receive
it and showed it to the crowd.
During his weekly general
audience on Wendesdays, the Pope usually takes about thirty
minutes to bless and greet all the pilgrims as he
passes by the popemobile.
