He warned against clerics who politicise by refusing communion, as if giving communion to pro-abortion politicians was not politicisation: RIGHT ON!

The pope obviously doesn't speak either one of those languages, so the few times that the pope actually spoke (besides the sermon), it makes sense that he would use Latin. His part in the liturgy was minimal, as would normally be the case.

It looked to me like they may have been the majority of the crowd.

Our Lady is full of grace.
And that is why she visits her cousin Elizabeth, for example.
She does not go on pilgrimage, she is always full of grace, the Lord is with her.
This man insults Our Lady very often.
