The Pope made a quick, "non-state" visit to Hungary in order to close the international Eucharistic event.

Pope Francis left Rome at 6 am on Sunday to fly to Budapest, where he closed the weeklong International Eucharistic Congress in Hungary.

The Holy Father had meetings with Hungary’s political leaders and bishops, as well as representatives of the Ecumenical Council of Churches and Jewish communities of the country.

He then went on to celebrate the open-air Mass at Heroes’ Square, the closing event of the Eucharistic Congress, before departing for Slovakia where he will spend the next few days.

Enjoy these pictures of his quick but important trip.
