Photo of the Day

Associated Press
FILE - In this Feb. 25, 1965 file photo Pope Paul VI is borne on his portbale throne, the Sedia Gestatoria, through a huge crowd in St. Peter's Basilica, at the Vatican. Watching Pope Francis in his first papal appearances, he too doesn't look the type to be carried on a portable throne. After all, he used to take the bus to work as a cardinal back in Buenos Aires, and he eschewed the chauffeur-driven Vatican limousine when he made his first outing, using a simple Vatican car. Change comes slowly, hesitantly and inconsistently at the Vatican. (AP Photo)
