The Pope's fourth day in Canada in one minute

In just sixty seconds, we bring you the most evocative images of the moments that marked the fourth day of Pope Francis' apostolic journey to Canada.

In the morning, the Pope arrived by plane in Québec, the capital of the eastern French-speaking province of the same name, which lies on the banks of the St. Lawrence River.

The Pope then went to the Citadelle de Québec, where the Pontiff met privately with the Governor General, Mary May Simon, and the Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau.

Immediately afterward, he addressed the civil authorities, the diplomatic corps, and a delegation of indigenous peoples, to whom he reiterated his request for forgiveness for the abuses in residential schools, which were also perpetrated by members of the Catholic Church.

At the same time, he made an appeal for the world to be inspired by indigenous values for the care of creation and the defence of the family, and against all ideological colonisation.
