The Pope went immediately to the Mary Queen of Peace Monument to celebrate Mass for around 100,000 of the faithful.

After lunch with Indian Ocean Bishops, Pope Francis prayed at the tomb of Blessed Father Laval, known as the Apostle of Mauritius.

His last event was a meeting with the nations’ authorities, representatives of civil society, and the diplomatic corps.

The Pope then boarded the papal plane and returned to Antananarivo, Madagascar, to stay the night before returning to Rome on Tuesday.
