"It's important to say 'I went to Rome', but not only did I go to Rome, 'I also saw the Pope. 'It's an inexplicable feeling. We went inside and asked each other 'Do you feel something' 'What is it'? I don't know what it is, but it's a very strong and beautiful sensation.”

These Argentinians say their trip has been a unique and unforgettable time. In fact, they say that despite everything they've seen and experienced, seeing the Pope has been one of the highlights.

"I just wanted to hug him. We tried to get closer because people were holding his hand and kissing it. We wanted to get close enough to hug him. Out of nowhere, it's very striking to suddenly hear, 'Long live the Pope.' People don't stop clapping. It's actually very powerful, to see just how important the Pope is to people.”

Every Wednesday similar experiences take place, when thousands of people from every corner of the world, visit the Vatican to hear the Pope's general audience and the catechesis he gives to Christians.
