AFTERSHOCK: A Look Back at the Earthquake Called Francis

Aleteia's 4-minute review of the papal visit

At the UN, Pope Francis is shown saying, “The hour has come when a pause, a moment of recollection, reflection, even of prayer, is absolutely needed so that we may think back over our common origin, our history, our common destiny.”

Indeed, let us pause; let us reflect.

Unpacking this past week and processing all we have seen and heard will take some time, and some prayer, and some quiet reflection and discussion.

But first, a look back. Aleteia has enjoyed putting together this collection of highlights from the papal visit, which shook America like a gentle but genuine earthquake. We are still feeling the aftershock, and yes, Papa, “it was beautiful”!
