We were high in the stands and had a fantastic view.
Before the Pope arrived there was a procession of people with flags from different countries throughout the world.
The first performance was a tremendous RiverDance. Children made a circle around the crowds and as the song concluded they stood and began to dance together with those on the stage. It was fantastic!
We made some lovely friends in the stands as we waited several hours for the evening to begin. Several Franciscan friars were there and Capuchin friars. We are leaving in just minutes to go to the Papal Mass. We will keep you all in prayer.
