Francis
  • Pope Francis delivers his Angelus prayer from the window of his studio overlooking St. Peter's Square, at the Vatican, Sunday, March 17, 2013. Breaking with tradition, Pope Francis delivered off-the-cuff remarks about God's power to forgive instead of reading from a written speech for the first Sunday window appearance of his papacy. He also spoke only in Italian, beginning with "buon giorno" (Good day) and ending with "buon pranzo" (Have a good lunch), instead of greeting the faithful in several languages

    Pope Francis' diplomatic skills were put to the test as he lunched with Argentine President Cristina Fernandez, a day before world leaders attend his installation Mass.
