Students show support

for Pope after protests

"The Pope smiled a welcome to university students who showed up at his general audience in Vatican City.

As he entered the audience hall, they shouted 'Freedom!' in reference to his right to free speech.

One banner held by students read, 'If the Pope won't come to La Sapienza, La Sapienza will come to the Pope.'

The Vicar of Rome, Cardinal Camillo Ruini, invited Romans to show their support for the Pope by coming to St Peter's Square on Sunday for his weekly prayer."
