Everything was very enjoyable! Thank you very much for a very enjoyable time with The Papal Audience with Pope Francis! Please ask Him to be as near as He Can to send More Loving Prayers and Best Wishes Forever! I hope to see you and Him again and love for you to send Him this message of love too!

The overall experience was good, from meeting point to entry. Our guide provided background information throughout the long queue to go through security and entry. I realize that one never knows the extent of weekly crowds but my suggestion is to make the meeting time at least 15 earlier so closer seats inside can be obtained.
