A boy on top of his father's shoulders during Papal mass in Philadelphia.

This is a scene from the Benjamin Franklin Parkway during Sunday's papal mass as the concluding ceremony of the World Meeting of Families hosted in Philadelphia this year. Close to 2 million people gathered to witness Pope Francis celebrate mass. At the end before leaving he said, “I ask you to pray for me. Don’t forget!”.
