The wait was long but it was worth it when we could see the Pope quite close-up from his balcony. It was a wonderful experience to see so many people from all over the world coming here, waiting for hours, just to be with the Pope for about 15 minutes to say the Angelus! On the way back, we were amazed to learn about the difficult lives of the early Christians with the visit to the Catacombs of St. Callistus.
