People start filling up St Peter’s square early morning on Sunday if the Pope (Francis) is in town. Around 11:30 it is getting pretty crowded and the anticipation is palpable, he is a popular guy! He appears from the window of the papal quarters in the vatican, although being a Jesuit and accustomed to more modest means, he lives in a room at the vatican guest house.
