Sunday, 3 April 2022, 09:48 Last update: about 3 years ago

Pope Francis made an unscheduled stop on his way to Floriana on Sunday morning.

While passing through Hamrun, the Pope stopped at the Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, which houses the remains of St George Preca. He and Archbishop Scilcluna entered the chapel and said a small prayer before heading back out to the motorcade, where the Pope entered the Popemobile.

Pope Francis is in the second day of his visit. Earlier on Sunday he visited St Paul's Grotto and later today, he will deliver mass at the Floriana Granaries.
