Pope begins the second leg of his trip to the Caucasus in Tblisi, Georgia

2016-09-30

The pope had a very punctual arrival to the Tblisi airport, a few minutes before he was scheduled at three o'clock.

He was welcomed by strong gusts of wind and the warm enthusiasm of several hundred Catholics.

At the bottom of the plane's stairs, he greeted President Giorgi Margvelashvili, with his wife.

The Patriarch of the Orthodox Church of Georgia, Ilia II, 83, also wanted to personally meet him at the airport, despite his delicate health.

The powerful wind played some tricks on them, but was unable to distract them during the traditional anthems.

This simple act started the pope's trip to Georgia, where he intends to promote peace in the Caucasus region and build bridges with the Georgian Orthodox Church, who is perhaps the most opposed to dialogue with Catholics.
