Pope Francis makes the sign of the cross

Pope Francis makes the sign of the cross as he visits the Austro-Hungarian cemetery in Fogliano di Redipuglia, northern Italy, on Saturday, Sept. 13, 2014. The pope confronted a piece of his own family history when he visited a World War I memorial Saturday built amid the battlefields where his grandfather fought in the brutal Italian offensive against the Austro-Hungarian empire — and survived to impress upon the future pope the horrors of war.
