Last Sunday in Rome we were near the Vatican when Piazza San Pietro filled up. We entered the crowd to find that we were in the midst of Pope Benedict XVI’s Sunday blessings to the crowd. I took a few pictures:

It was neat to have been there for this. Pope Benedict XVI gave his blessing in several languages. After this I decided to buy his newest book so that I can begin reading some of his work.
