Pope Francis Greets Pilgrims on the Parkway


PHILADELPHIA--(WTXF)--Pope Francis greeted thousands of pilgrims on the parkway on Sunday afternoon on his way to the Closing Mass on the parkway.

The pope stopped the popemobile en route and blessed and greeted the adoring crowd.

The World Meeting of Families tweeted an adorable photo of a baby during Pope Francis’ journey. The photo shows an image of a baby dressed as the pope. Pope Francis can be seen smiling in the background.

The Closing Mass Sunday caps Francis' 10-day trip to Cuba, Washington, New York and Philadelphia. Many reported waiting for hours to pass through security checkpoints to get to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway where the Mass is being held downtown.
