Traveling all the way from Uganda and Argentina to see Pope Francis in Rome

2013-09-15

A total of 3,134 miles. Thats the distance this group of 50 from Uganda, traveled to see the Pope. For most of them, it's the first time they ever left  their country. It seems thepapal audience exceeded their expectations.

"It's amazing how all the people, of course we don't all have the same faith, but all the people come to see one man. One man of God. Establishing, confirming their faith in God, in the representative of the Holy Father.”

But their adventure doesn't end there. For the next few weeks they'll continue their pilgrimage through Spain, France and Portugal. Their excitement is quite obvious.


"¡If we start dancing we need a little space here!”

This group of Argentinians also has a lot to talk about. They all traveled 6, 934 miles to finally arrive to the Eternal City.  It's said that "friendship knows no distance” and this Argentinian says, Pope Francis is more like a life long acquaintance.

"I met him in the Flores neighborhood when he was still a bishop. It was at a religious ceremony of the Don Orione nuns. My husband took our daughter to the altar, where the bishop, now the Pope, congratulated them.”

If all these travel miles were added, it would be enough for several trips around the world. But they say, when it comes to seeing Pope Francis, distance is just a number

"The Holy Father is so simple, you know. The kisses children, someone gave him something to drink, and he drank it.  It was wonderful. The love people feel towards the Pope is incredible.”

Jet-lag, discomfort and fatigue are some of the  obstacles travelers face. Nevertheless, after stepping into St. Peter's they say it was all worth it.
