Pope Francis Blessing Pilgrims as he passed by in his Pope-mobil on way to Benjamin Franklin Parkway to celebrate Mass at 4PM
The cogent message Pope Francis brought to America can be summarized in excerpts from his homilies on Faith, the beauty of Truth, the beauty of Family (the Church begins in the home), and Love which give us our true freedom and happiness:
'That which gives true freedom and true happiness is the compassionate love of Christ.'
