Transcript for Pope Francis Rounds Out Philadelphia Trip With Visit to Prison
Tonight, from Philadelphia, we begin with pope Francis' final night in America. If you look over my shoulder, you can see the extraordinary crowd that gathered. The open-air mass nearing an end, hundreds of thousands on hand. For the pope's message to families everywhere. Coming after an emotional weekend in Philadelphia. A short time after he touched warm supper." Before the mass, he met privately with sex abuse victims. Saying he was overwhelmed by shame, and promising justice. He's holding everyone accountable. And saying in no uncertain terms, this is what I commit to do. Reporter: Earlier, he helicoptered just ten miles north, but into another world. Inside Philadelphia's prison, Francis spoke to about 100 inmates. They listened, some casually, some intently. "This time in your life can only have one purpose, to give you a hand," he said. "All of us are part of that effort." He shook hands with everyone, and received a bear hug from one, blessing him in return. Since the moment Francis landed, the band playing the theme song from "Rocky." Extraordinary scenes at the airport. He sees someone. He stops the car, walking over to 10-year-old Michael Keating. A boy living with disabilities. His mother overcome. At Independence hall, he declared his solidarity with them all. And then a prayer vigil last night, where Aretha franklin sang, and he offered advice on family life. Sometimes plates can fly. And children bring headaches. Reporter: Classic pope Francis. A pope full of surprises, and who clearly wants to shake things up in his church, in the United States, and around the world.
