A week has passed since the historic visit of Pope Francis to the UAE – the Papal Visit marks the first from any Pope to visit the MENA region, and Filipinos continue to share their words of gratitude to the UAE Government for hosting the Pope.

The short visit concluded with the Papal Mass that saw over 180,000 of the faithful who attended the event at Zayed City Sports stadium.

“God is with those who seek peace. From heaven He blesses every step which, on this path, is accomplished,” the Holy See captioned the photos that he shared on Instagram for his visit.

Here are a few comments from the TFT’s Facebook page left by our readers.

The Papal Visit is a testament to the UAE’s ‘Year of Tolerance’ as the short visit was in conjunction with the celebrations of the ‘International Interfaith Meeting on Human Fraternity’ that saw the Muslim Council of Elders together with Pope Francis as well as different leaders from various religions around the world converge in a dialogue to pursue paths of mutual agreement and build bridges towards unity and harmony for years to come.
