    On Saturday, Pope Francis departed for Morocco; this marks his second trip to a Muslim country since the beginning of 2019.

    Pope Francis, who is currently paying a visit to Morocco in a two-day trip, is celebrating mass at the Rabat Stadium; some estimates indicate that 10,000 people gathered for the religious event on Sunday. 

    During his first day in Morocco, Pope Francis commented on Jerusalem, stressing that it should become a "symbol of peaceful coexistence" for Christians, Jews and Muslims — this statement echoes the views of Morocco's King Mohammed VI who invited the prominent Catholic figure to the predominantly Muslim state.
