We saw Pope Francis yesterday in person - twice!! We were positioned on the Ben Franklin Parkway so that we were between 2 streets on the pope's parade route. I mostly just absorbed the moment and didn't focus on taking pictures but I did get one blurry image of his approaching motorcade.
We also enjoyed lots of entertainment by musicians, dancers, a comedian, and more! We were sitting near the Sisters of Life and we got a big kick out of them rocking out and dancing to some of the songs!! One of my sweet friends was among the Sisters so we had a little reunion!
Our little group had a nice spot right in front of one of the jumbotrons where we stayed for pretty much all day.
Here we were excitedly waiting to get through the checkpoint.
