BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Baton Rouge Bishop Robert Muench was one of thousands who joined in the papal celebrations in Washington earlier this week. 

He shared his reflections Friday on the holy visit. 

"His reverence and his sincerity and his genuineness and his ability to be so eloquent in his message and his message is not just to be read," Muench said. "It's not just to be heard, it's to be reflected on and prayed with."

Pope Francis has moved on to New York, which is the second leg of his trip.
