In DC, Francis breaks with protocol

Francis breaks with protocol, shakes hands

(ANSA) - New York, September 23 - Thousands lined the streets of Washington, DC on Wednesday in expectation of Pope Francis.
    They sported Pope Francis stickers on their T-shirts, bags and backpacks.
    The round sticker being distributed by volunteers features a photo of the smiling pope and the motto 'Share the joy, walk with Francis' and the hashtag #PopeInDC. On his way to the White House, Francis broke with protocol when he stopped to shake hands, hug people and kiss babies.
    The pontiff chatted with some of the faithful who had gathered to welcome him, and had his picture taken with some.
