The central event of the first stage of the 34th apostolic visit of Pope Francis was today’s Holy Mass celebrated by him in the Heroes’ Square in Budapest.
Before the service, the Pope blessed and greeted the pilgrims.
Representatives of the authorities and other denominations attended the Mass. Among them was His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, who is also on a visit to Budapest.
Patriarch Bartholomew and Pope Francis held a brief personal meeting to discuss issues related to the Eastern and Western Churches, the ecology and social activities of the two churches, as well as the refugee problem on the European continent and the Middle East.
