The well-loved Pope Francis flies back to Rome 10 AM yesterday, January 19, Monday, leaving behind millions of emotionally high and faithfully recharged Filipinos.

Before boarding the plane, Pope Francis gave the crowd at Villamor Air base a final blessing.

Pope Francis touched millions of lives with his simple wave, contagious smile, and heartwarming messages of love and hope. He discussed issues on corruption, sanctity of family, caring for the poor and the children, respecting women, among others.

The highlight of his trip, the pontiff’s Holy Mass at Quirino grandstand, set a record for being the biggest papal event, with an estimated 6 million attendees.
