Pope Benedict had just finished his Angelus when I took this. St Peter’s was bathed in the noon sunlight while we were in the shaded darkness. The light makes it look like I have just photoshopped St Peter’s in… but it really is standing there!
There were over 50,000 people there today all to hear a few words from Papa. They all wanted to say thank you – there were so many signs and tearful people. He is so loved. Bill was just reading an article where a young Italian guy said they went along hoping to change Pope Benedict’s mind. Awwww!!
Today is our last day here. So that equals nonhappy365. *sad*
