“I’m not just a Catholic, I’m a Roman Catholic. And understanding the importance of that has given me confidence going back.”

The program called “The Rome Experience,” brought American students from different walks of life together in the Eternal City to study and live.

The pope also explained that inside the sarcophagus, which has never been opened before, archaeologists found the remains of tissue.
