CAFRICA-VATICAN-POPE-AFRICA-VISIT

A girl dances at the Bangui Stadium where Pope Francis leads a mass on November 30, 2015 as part of a papal visit to Africa. Pope Francis arrived as "a pilgrim of peace" in conflict-ridden Central African Republic on November 29, flying in from Uganda on what will be the most dangerous destination of his three-nation Africa tour.

Check out these highlights, via Rome Reports, from the pope’s final Mass in Africa,at the Barthelemy Boganda Stadium in Bangui, CAR.

It kicks off with a deacon receiving the Book of the Gospels—and the celebratory atmosphere never lets up.

This is our faith. Further proof, if any were needed, that we are Easter people!
