After he stepped off his plane at Andrews Air Force Base in neighboring Maryland, Francis was driven into town in the back of a tiny, charcoal gray Fiat 500L.

It was hard to spot the Pope in the motorcade of more than 20 armored SUVs and police cars that motored into the nation’s capital late Tuesday.
