Pope’s blessing during audience turns into an unexpected surprise
During the papal audience, Pope Francis customarily approaches the crowds of pilgrims and faithful who eagerly want to meet the pontiff and ask to bless religious items.
This morning was no exception as the pope approached and greeted a couple. After speaking with them, he blessed a ring that they presented. Immediately after the blessing, the man opened the box, which contained an engagement ring and surprised his future wife in front of hundreds of other pilgrims.
