Pope Francis prays for peace in DR Congo
The morning sun is burning relentlessly. Seraphine Nlandu fans herself. She has entered the gate at Ndolo Airport grounds in Kinshasa, eyeing the lawn where up to one million people are expected to gather.
In a few moments, Pope Francis will wave over from his popemobile, as he is chauffeured over the landing strip to a massive platform. People have eagerly awaited the mass he will hold here in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
"First of all, we are happy," Nlandu says. "We hope that the pope's presence will bring peace to the country."
