Pope returns to Vatican as six-day Africa visit ends
Pope Francis is set to return to the Vatican after his six-day visit to Congo and South Sudan.
Before his departure from Juba, Francis plans to celebrate Mass in the South Sudanese capital on Sunday morning.
During the trip, the pope urged the people and politicians in South Sudan, which is plagued by armed conflict, to pray for peace.
He was accompanied and supported by two Protestant church leaders from the former colonial power Britain: Archbishop of Canterbury and Primate of the Anglican Church Justin Welby and Church of Scotland Moderator Iain Greenshields.
