(Romereports.com) Sunday's Angelus ended in an unusual fashion when Benedict XVI released two doves into St. Peter's Square, only to get attacked by seagulls.
The doves were released to mark the arrival of a Caravan for peace to St. Peter's Square. The Pope released them soon after a member of the caravan spoke asking the Pope to pray for you and their communities. After releasing the doves, Benedict XVI retreated into his papal residence, while the two doves sat around his apartment's window sills. That's when a seagull swooped in and began chasing the doves, as the crowds in St. Peter's Square looked on. In the end, both doves made it out OK.
