    Titles read: "POPE VISITS PRISONERS".

    Rome, Italy.

    High angle shot of the buildings of Rome jail. High angle shots of prisoners applauding in a central area inside the prison. Pope John XXIII walks up to a makeshift altar and delivers his prayers and blessing. Prisoners watch from the balcony.

    The Pope talks to several prisoners in the prison hospital; they kiss his Fisherman's Ring and he pats them on the head. To one man he motions with his hand from the man's heart to his own.

    The Pope walks along a line of kneeling prisoners. He comes out of the prison, gets into his car and is driven away.
