Pope Francis: St Peter's crowds hear Angelus prayer

Pope Francis has delivered the Angelus prayer and blessing before a crowd of many thousands gathered in St Peter's Square in Rome.

The Pope also delivered off-the-cuff remarks, about God's power to forgive, instead of reading a written speech.

It was the Pope's second official appearance before the general public since he was elected on Wednesday.
