Pope Meets People with Disabilities, Orphans in Dhaka on Last Day of Visit

DHAKA – Pope Francis visited on Saturday the House of Mother Teresa and the Holy Rosary Church complex on the last day of his visit to Bangladesh.

The Pope visited the House of Mother Teresa in Tejgaon, the shelter in Dhaka that is run by the Missionaries of Charity and houses orphans and people with mental or physical disabilities.

He attended a small exhibition dedicated to Mother Teresa, the founder of the Missionaries of Charity, who was canonized in 2016, 19 years after her death.

The supreme pontiff entered the two halls where people were being cared for, and gave them a blessing.

He then walked to the Holy Rosary Church, where he met the faithful, who received him with loud applauses and enthusiasm.

Pope Francis heard five testimonies and gave an improvised talk, delivered in Spanish and translated to English.

He later made a brief stop for a prayer in a cemetery and sprinkled holy water on the tombs.

He then continued with his walk through the complex, which houses two educational centers and an orphanage, and entered the adjacent old Holy Rosary Church.

The supreme pontiff met with the children who were waiting to welcome him inside the church and asked them to pray every night before bed and to pray for him.

Pope Francis’ visit to Bangladesh will conclude with a meeting with young people at Dhaka’s Notre Dame University.
