Mosaic of Pope Francis ready to be placed inside St. Paul Outside




This will be the new face that adorns the magnificent walls inside the Papal Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls.

More than nine months after his election, Archpriest James Michael Harvey presented the mosaic of Pope Francis to the Holy Father, before Wednesday General Audience.

The mosaic of Pope Francis will be placed alongside those of Benedict XVI and John Paul II, at the gallery inside the Basilica. The gallery is well known for its mosaics of all the Popes elected in the Church's history.

This particular mosaic was built by workers at Fabric of St. Peter, inside the Vatican.
