A girl on top of the traffic lights in Benjamin Franklin Parkway during Papal visit in Philadelphia.

This is a scene from the Benjamin Franklin Parkway during yesterday's papal mass as the concluding ceremony of the World Meeting of Families hosted in Philadelphia this year. This girl climbed on top of a traffic signal to get a better view of the event. Close to 2 million people gathered to witness Pope Francis celebrate mass. At the end he said, “I ask you to pray for me. Don’t forget!”. And she did.
