POPE FRANCIS 
"The Eucharist is the Sacrament of Communion, which takes us out of our individualism, so that we may live our journey together, following in His footsteps, by placing our faith in Him. Therefore we ought to ask ourselves before the Lord: How do I live the Eucharist? Do I live it anonymously or as a moment of true Communion with the Lord, also with many brothers and sisters who share this same table? How are our Eucharistic celebrations?”

During the candlelight procession, the Pope walked for about 1.5 miles accompanied by the songs and prayers of the faithful.  

Even though there had been heavy rain earlier in the day, it didn't rain at all during the Mass or procession. Following tradition, the two hour celebration ended at the Basilica of St. Mary Major.
