(Vatican Radio) After arriving in Mexico City on Friday night, Pope Francis made a brief appearance outside the Apostolic Nunciature (Vatican Embassy), where he will be staying while in the Mexican capital.

He told the people they “needed to rest” ahead of the weekend’s festivities, and accepted two white roses from well-wishers.

He also led the crowd in a Hail Mary.

Finally, he left them with these word: "Look at the Virgin and remember these faces: The people who love us, those we love, those we do not like, those who do not like us, and are envious of us.''
