During his first morning as Pope, Francis prayed for nearly 30 minutes at the altar of Rome's Basilica of St. Mary Major
. He left a floral arrangement at the alter, after entrusting his pontificate to the Virgin Mary.
Before leaving he greeted a married couple and gave his blessing to a woman, who is five months pregnant.
Francis left the Basilica amid applause, as he made his way back to the Vatican.
