Pope's General Audience

One of the things my fiancee and I got to do last week was attend Pope Benedict XVI's General Audience in St. Peter's Square. Even having studied in the Eternal City for two years, I never once attended a General Audience. We got third row seats, up on the main steps. I tried to concentrate on what the pope was saying, but I couldn't resist taking a few photos.

More important than seeing the pope in person, though, was what he said. He gave an excellent summary of the life and work of St. Cyril of Alexandria in defending the true Catholic faith. You can read the Zenit summary here.
