Pope Francis steps briskly towards the popemobile on a near perfect day in Rome, at the conclusion of the General Audience on his way to greet the people. The weather was sunny and 70 degrees Fahrenheit, with rich blue skies and just the right amount of fluffy clouds. It has been said that the blue and white skies are a beautiful symbol of how the Blessed Mother watches over the world, leading us to her son, Jesus.
