Along the Processional Route

One of the nice things about having a mobile Pope is the return, as shown here, to the practice of liturgical processions which leave from the Bronze Door (at the edge of Bracchio Charlemagne, midway through the Piazza) and wend their way to the Sagrato, the steps of St. Peter's.

And, thanks to that resurrection, we get fun shots like this.

Check out the shades on Levada. Even now, he's so California.

(Before anyone gets the vapors, it's a peace flag.... Caption and another photo.)
