Pope Francis has arrived in Havana, Cuba where he held Mass this morning for tens of thousands of people.
This is his first visit to the Communist-governed Island.
The Pope walked off the plane on Saturday to meet with leaders and large crowds of citizens, who came to witness his presence and watch him touch down on home soil.
He kicked off his trip to Cuba and the United States by praising both nations in restoring their diplomatic ties.
History was also made, as it was the first time Cubans heard the mass in their native tongue of Spanish, noting that Pope Francis is the first to come from Latin America.
Cuban President Raul Castro attended the event in Revolution Square, although he is not a Catholic. Both he and his 89-year-old brother Fidel Castro are also slated to meet with the 78-year-old pontiff at some point.
Pope Francis will also be making his first visit to the U.S. after he leaves Cuba.
I ask you to join me in praying for my trip to Cuba and the United States. I need your prayers.
