St. Peter's Square was filled with people eager to see Pope Benedict XVI.

ROME -

We are up bright and early for our audience with the Pope.

Three years ago for the Damien pilgrimage audience, we arrived before everyone and were able to place the patients' wheelchairs up front and center.  And then everyone else came with their wheelchairs and our folks ended up in the fourth row!

It really doesn't matter actually since the Pope does not alight from his popemobile, unlike our private audience with John Paul II in 1994 where we were able to touch hands and receive a personal blessing for the people of Hawaii.
