Rome - Thousands of Catholics waving flags from around the world packed St. Peter's Square on Sunday to hear Pope Francis deliver his inaugural Angelus.

 

The new pontiff gave his Angelus, or noon blessing, from his papal apartment window, speaking to the more than 200,000 worshippers in the square.

 

He made the historic address after celebrating Mass at Sant'Anna parish in Vatican City earlier Sunday.

 

In a rare move for a pope, Francis spontaneously walked out from Vatican territoy to greet cheering well-wishers outside Sant'Anna Gate.
