Yesterday, not only the UAE, but the eyes of the world were on Pope Francis‘ visit to the UAE.
When a Muslim country welcomed the head of the Catholic Church with open arms, Pope Francis told mass to over 130k people and the world witnessed the signing of the ‘Human Fraternity Declaration’, which proves the leaders stand together in the fight against racism, terrorism and war.
And the people for the UAE and the world were here for it. Here are just some of the amazing reactions to the Pope’s visit.
