First Sunday Mass as Pope

The Pope offered Mass this morning in the parish of St Anne, Vatican City.
The Pope stepped out of a plain black car and 
immediately began shaking hands and blessing babies.
The small church was packed and many were unable to find seats.

At the end of the Mass, Francis did the unexpected.
He walked to the podium again, 
and talked about a priest from Uruguay 
whom he had spotted among the faithful attending the Mass. 
The priest, Don Gonsalvo 
stood up while Francis was talking about his work 
with street children and drug-addicts for whom he built a school.

Thank you for posting this. A most moving and endearing view of our new Holy Father, Pope Francis.
