We were thrilled to be at the Vatican for Easter Mass with Pope Francis. We were actually quite close, 4 rows back from a “walk-through”, and in one of the rows that were able to receive communion. Having a chair to sit in was a lifesaver. Between Mass and the Urbi et Orbi blessing Francis came down our “walk-through” twice so we got a good close view of him. He looks very happy. Listening to him say Mass was very calming, his voice is gentle and humble.
(Zillions of photos. Will get all this sorted out when we get home.)
