October 26, 2013 (Romereports.com) Sayingthat Buenos Aires prides itself in giving the Catholic Church itsPope would be an understatement. The day of his Inaugural Mass,50,000 people packed the city's main square, Plaza de Mayo, to watchthe ceremony live.
Theimages from that early morning can be found at the web page theBuenos Aires City Government just created in honor of Pope Francis.The page, titled Ciudaddel Papa,or the Pope's Hometown, features a wealth of information on the lifeof Pope Francis, before he was Pope. Thewebsite features the biography of Jorge Bergoglio: from birth, to hisappointment as archbishop, and finally his election as Pope.
Butperhaps the most popular section is an interactive map of ArchbishopBergoglio's daily commute and points of interest. This listincludes, of course, the Metropolitan Cathedral he led as archbishop.But it also has the local parish in the Flores neighborhood where hediscovered his vocation.
Withouta doubt, the city is hoping to attract more visitors. But the websiteis also their way of paying homage to one of its most famousresidents.
