At the Square with Papa

As you can see from the following photos, we had quite a dramatic change of weather from Sunday's very wet and cold Canonization Mass. This was our second General Audience with Pope Benedict and by and large, the pilgrims were very well-behaved. The Maltese contingent here for St. George Preca's canonization were still very enthusiastic as they demonstrated on Sunday.

You can't see it...but some person jumped the fence and tried to get into the Popemobile. A very scary moment...where are those guards?

The General Audience at the end. Papa is still meeting with dignitaries to the left of the covered podium.
