"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.

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.
