Day 4 Highlights

Day 4 highlights for Pope Francis’ Apostolic Journey to Mongolia.

Pope inaugurates ‘House of Mercy’ in Mongolia, emphasises selfless love

On 4 September, marking his final day in Ulaanbaatar, Pope Francis stood before a gathering of charitable organisations and volunteers, expressing his gratitude for their warm welcome, which included traditional Mongolian song and dance.

He began his address drawing inspiration from the words of Jesus: “I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink”.

“In those words, the Lord gives us the criterion for recognising His presence in our world and the condition for entering into the supreme joy of His kingdom at the Last Judgement,” Pope Francis said.
