Thousands of pilgrims attend Pope mass

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Thousands of pilgrims packed into a sunny St. Peter's Square on Sunday to join Pope Francis in celebrating a mass dedicated to the Marian Day for the Year of Faith where prayers are particularly directed to the Virgin Mary. In a solemn and colorful ceremony priests took communion wafers out to the crowds of faithful while music played and prayers were recited in unison. Since his election on March 13, the former Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina has broken with the more esoteric and, some would say, ostentatious style of his predecessor Benedict, saying he wants to move the Church closer to the poor and suffering. The Pope ended Sunday morning with his now traditional drive around the square, greeting the crowds with a huge smile and kissing babies.
