Pope Francis prays at the Blue Mosque in Istanbul

(-ONLY VIDEO-) Pope Francis prayed for a few minutes at the Blue Mosque, just as Benedict XVI did back in 2006. It was the first place he went to after he arrived to Istanbul at 10:30AM local time. The Grand Mufti of Istanbul welcomed him at the entrance of the Mosque and guided him inside the temple. Before saying goodbye, the Pope told him that they should never forget "to praise and worship God" at all times. JRB CTV VM -BN Up: PM #Papa
