From Genoa back to Rome

At the conclusion of the Eucharistic celebration, before leaving Kennedy Square, the Holy Father listened to a song of greeting in the Genovese dialect entitled Ma se ghe pensu ... 

Then, after having greeted the members of the Organizing committee and thirty of their relatives - some inhabitants of the province of Genoa, others from the region of Piemonte - Pope Francis travelled by car to the Genoa airport where, after having blessed a statue of Our Lady of Loretto at the base of the aircraft's stairs, and bid farewell to local Authorities who had welcomed him earlier this morning, his aircraft took off at 7:50pm and headed back to Rome.

The aircraft carrying the Holy Father landed at Rome's Ciampino International Airport at 8:35pm.  The Holy Father then returned to the Vatican.
