Thailand puts on a show for Pope Francis

Pope Francis used his first public Mass in Thailand to call for compassion and help for migrants and victims of sex trafficking and drug addiction.

Delivering a homily in his native Spanish, he also encouraged Thai Catholics to be the missionary disciples of Jesus and follow in the footsteps of the first missionaries to their land.

About 30,000 faithful participated in the Holy Mass at Bangkok’s National Stadium on Nov. 21, though many more watched it on big screens outside the stadium.
