Of pilgrims and roses

VATICAN CITY — CNS’s senior Vatican photographer Paul Haring is hanging out in St. Peter’s Square.

He came upon Polish-American pilgrims from Chicago, and workers from Italy’s Puglia region who are helping arrange the flowers for tomorrow’s Mass. But the flowers aren’t from Italy. All 30,000 roses were shipped from Ecuador where the Ministry of Foreign Commerce rallied 20 farms and flower companies to make a splash of color in celebration of the canonizations of Blesseds John XXIII and John Paul II.
