With Pope Francis’ engagements at the University of Sto. Tomas(UST) and Quirino Grandstand, Rizal Park just hours away, crowds of devotees have started gathering in the streets leading to the Apostolic Nunciature in Taft Avenue, Manila as part of their efforts to catch a glimpse of the Pontiff.
Pope Francis is expected to leave the Apostolic Nunciature between 9 to 9: 30 a.m. for his meeting with the youth and religious leaders at UST.
Devotees are especially thick in the areas of Quirino and Nagtahan streets, areas where Pope Francis is expected to pass by, while on his way to UST.
People were seen converging in these streets as early as 1a.m. in a bid to catch a glimpse and wave at Pope Francis as he passes by. PNA
