I was visiting the Vatican City as part of my trip's programme, and had a chance to be part of the mass of people who were waiting eagerly for the Pope to appear, to deliver his weekly Sunday Mass. Although I'm not of that particular religious belief, but what amazes me is the sense of enthusiasm and eagerness that these audiences demonstrate as they waited patiently for him to appear. In fact I had a sense that this was very much akin to how fans of pop stars would be like, although this is somewhat a more sombre, and definitely a more well-behaved group. More than about capturing the Pope himself, what follows are photos of this audience. Somehow the idea of these people waiting eagerly just piqued my imagination and curiousity. Here are the visuals.
