- A handful of the men joined the Holy Father and the many pilgrims in town for the weekly Angelus in St. Peter's Square. The Holy Father, when he is in Rome, on Sundays and Solemnities comes to the window of his office to greet the pilgrims who are gathered in the square. He typically gives a brief reflection on the Gospel for the day (Italian) and then leads the Angelus (Latin).
