Pope Francis Holds Weekly Audience


VATICAN CITY, VATICAN – NOVEMBER 20: Pope Francis waves to the faithful as he leaves St. Peter’s square at the end of his weekly audience on November 20, 2013 in Vatican City, Vatican. As reported by the Sunday Times last week the ‘Francis effect’ is pulling crowds back to church: ‘Pope Francis has inspired a surge in attendances and confessions in the Roman Catholic Church, reversing decades of decline.’ (Photo by Franco Origlia/Getty Images)
