LIVE: Pope Francis visits the shrine of St. Albert Hurtado

The Jesuit provincial accompanies Pope Francis to the chapel containing the remains of St. Alberto Hurtado (1901-1952), who founded the “Home of Christ.” It's a welcoming house for the needy. St. Alberto Hurtado died due to a serious illness and was beatified by John Paul II in 1994. Benedict XVI canonized him in 2005.
