The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them.

After praying for about half an hour in silence, the Pope sang a hymn for Our Lady.

Afterward, he talked with Cardinal Santos Abril, in Spanish, as they made their way through the Basilica.

Before leaving, the pope was greeted with applause by those who work in the Basilica.

Everyone there wanted to greet the new Pope for the first time. In fact, a man asked Francis to bless his wife, who is five months pregnant. The Pope agreed.

“Please bless my son Holy Father. He is still in the womb.”

“Five months, five months Father.”

As he left the Basilica, many onlookers peeked through the windows. They cheered and applauded as the first Latin American Pope went back to the Vatican.
