Francis kisses newborns during ride around St Peter's Square

Vatican City, March 31 - Pope Francis had a quick ride in an open-top jeep around a packed St Peter's Square, blessing the faithful and stopping to kiss some newborn babies, at the end of his first Easter Sunday Mass. The pontiff was then set to deliver his first Urbi et Orbi (to the city and the world) papal address from the central balcony of St Peter's Basilica. Francis made his first appearance as pope from the same balcony after being elected Benedict XVI's successor on March 13.
