POPE CELEBRATES MASS IN MADAGASCAR

Written by on September 9, 2019

An estimated one million people attended a Mass celebrated by Pope Francis on the outskirts of Madagascar’s capital city, Antananarivo.

Worshippers braved the windswept dust to ensure a place at the Mass.

Addressing worshippers, the Pope spoke out against what he termed the patronage which produces a few rich people while the vast majority live in grinding poverty.

Some have described it as the biggest public gathering in Madagascar’s history.

Madagascar is the second part of his three-leg Africa tour. He has already visited Mozambique and his next stop is Mauritius.
