Pope Francis holds stadium mass In Tbilisi
Pope Francis held a stadium Mass in Tbilisi on the second day of a weekend trip to the Caucasus that is focused on preaching religious tolerance and peace, RadioFreeEurope/RadioLiberty reports.
In his homily on October 1, Francis urged Catholics to find consolation in God and not be "saddened by the lack of harmony around us."
Upon his arrival in Tbilisi on September 30, Francis met with Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili and called for the respect of international law and the sovereign rights of nations.
On October 2, Francis will fly to Baku and hold Mass at the Salesian-run Church of the Immaculate Conception.
Later, he will visit a monument to those who died in the struggle for independence and meet with government leaders.
