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.
