Photo of the Day: October 19, 2017

In this timeless photo, Pope Francis releases a dove as a symbol of peace during a meeting with Chaldean community at the Catholic Church of St. Simon Bar Sabbae in Tbilisi, on September 30, 2016.

Pope Francis set off that day for Georgia and Azerbaijan on a mission to promote peace in a troubled part of the world, three months after he visited neighboring Armenia.
