Pope Francis keeps his first prayer short and sweet

VATICAN CITY, ITALY (PIX11)- The crowds began to pack St. Peters Square hours before Pope Francis would deliver his first Angelus prayer of his papacy.

Flocks of people, pouring into the streets as far as they eye can see.

When the clock struck noon, the crowd erupted as he started with a familiar phrase

Pope Francis’ Angelus was simple he started by thanking the crowd for their prayers and asked them to continue.

He spoke more about why he chose the name Francis, and his Italian roots.

It was a bit of a change from previous popes who use this moment to discuss international issues.

After a brief twenty minutes he was done.

“The pope reminded us that god is always willing to forgive us if we ask him.”

“Its great different nations here, he has great expression in his voice and we enjoyed listening to that”

With hundreds of thousands in attendance for his first Angelus, it’s amazing to see that not everybody is actually catholic, making today’s events that much more extraordinary

On the day of his first Angelus came his first tweet.

“Dear friends, I thank you from my heart and I ask you continue to pray for me.”

    With God's direction and the support of the Holy Spirit, Pope Francis just might make Roman Catholicism a faith to which the born-Catholics and other fallen-aways, can return!
