Pope Francis lands in Baghdad, Begins Four-day Visit

Pope Francis on Friday began the first-ever papal trip to Iraq, landing in a country with an extraordinary biblical history but that is also experiencing a serious Coronavirus outbreak and ongoing political turmoil.

It’s the first trip Francis has embarked on since the pandemic swept the world and the first time a head of the Roman Catholic Church is believed to have visited the country

Francis’s four-day visit is his first international trip since the start of the pandemic and marks a return to the globe-trotting diplomacy, especially to minority-Christian countries,that had been his hallmark, it is also the first time a head of the Roman Catholic Church is believed to have visited the country.

Observers say the Popes visits amounts to a show of encouragement for a nation trying to recover from the chaos of a U.S.-led invasion and the brutality of the Islamic State, a group that once vowed to “conquer Rome.”
