LIVE: Pope Francis celebrates Mass at N'dolo International Airport

On his second day in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Pope Francis celebrates Mass in the N'dolo International Airport to pray for peace and justice.

The Mass follows the Roman Missal for the Diocese of Zaire and is celebrated in French and Lingala, a Bantu language spoken in the Northwestern part of the country.

Following Pope Francis' homilies, the Prayers of the Faithful are read in French and the four national languages: Tshiluba, Liungala, Swahili, and Kikongo. At the end of the Mass, Cardinal Fridolin Ambongo Besungu, Archbishop of Kinshasa, greeted the Pope.
