View from Rome

 

Catholics are normally seen as Christians who sing the Alleluia without smiling, keeping their arms firmly by their sides and pointed towards the floor at all times.

In the crowd there was dancing, singing and speaking in tongues, and flanking him on either side were two female leaders of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal.
