Pope Francis held an outdoor Mass on Saturday for huge crowds in Seoul as part of his five-day trip to South Korea. The Vatican estimated some 800,000 people turned out for the service.

The pontiff’s visit coincides with the Asian Catholic youth festival, and on Sunday he will officiate at the closing Mass for the festival at a 15th Century fortress in South Korea.

Here are some images of the pope’s visit to South Korea.

Morris, who goes to every football game to cheer for her son, said the offensive lineman had to overcome his grandfather’s deep skepticism about whether black students are truly welcome at the university. The warm welcome extended to both mother and son during a recruiting visit by students and players are among the main reasons the Morris family were quick to join the Ole Miss family.
