Tags: Currents Crux, Pope Francis

Pope Francis is back at the Vatican after his Labor Day weekend trip to Mongolia.

It’s the latest in the holy father’s efforts to reach out to the peripheries.

Mongolia is home to just three churches and fewer than 1500 Catholics.

During his flight back to Rome, Pope Francis talked about some future trips.

John Allen, the editor of Crux, joins Currents News from St. Peter’s Square to talk about the pope’s trip and future travel plans.
