Huge crowds take in Pope Francis' Angelus prayer ahead of a week-long spiritual retreat. (SOUNDBITE) (Italian) POPE FRANCIS, SAYING: "I hope that the Lenten journey which has just begun will be fruitful to everyone, and I ask you to include in your prayers me and the employees of the Roman Curia who this evening will start a week of spiritual exercises. Thank you." The Pope left the Vatican Sunday, for a retreat outside of the city state. It's the first time in living memory the retreat is being held outside the Vatican. Some say the decision is another sign of how the Pope is unafraid to change age-old conventions. (SOUNDBITE) (German) GERMAN TOURIST, BRIGITTE, SAYING: "I love the pope, I think Francis comes across like a real father figure and like a normal person." But others doubt he can change the Roman Catholic Church: (SOUNDBITE) (English) DANISH TOURIST, STIEG, SAYING: "They have ruled the world for 2,000 years and they will rule the world for the next 2,000 years. It's old men." His first anniversary as Pope is just around the corner. And he's since broken many customs in a drive to bring more simplicity to the Vatican. Like living in a boarding house rather than the Papal Palace and using a Ford Focus instead of the papal limousine.
