"Many of the solutions to the problems in our country and the world are precisely in renewing our faith, returning to its origins. To return to the first thing that is love for Jesus Christ and that was the message the Pope gave today as well.”
"All the peace we want for the world has to come from all families, and the family that prays together, stays together.”
"What caught my attention the most is that the Pope is very happy.”
"It's also cool to see everyone coming together to see the Pope.”
To avoid getting lost in the crowd, families develop their own tricks, like using a same color bandana, or the same hat.
This Argentine family from La Plata says bringing their children to Rome makes them live out the universality of the Church.
"They can what else makes up the Church, it's not just the parish where we go to Mass or their schools. They can see that the Church is universal.”
"This is the third time that we are in Rome, our first was as newlyweds. Then with her as a baby, and now all four of us. It's very important to be here, to be able to come back.”
Age is no limitation either. This small girl who does not let her dad's had go to walk was able to greet the Pope up close in his Popemobile.
As life begins within the family, so will passing on the faith. That's why many parents choose to bring along their children to St. Peters Square, so that they can tell their friends that as kids they came to see the Pope.
