MANILA, Philippines—A long line of people who gathered to take part in saying goodbye to Pope Francis this Monday morning didn’t have to bring their thin, transparent raincoats. For once, they were able to wait in comfort with the warm sun shining on their backs.  

Upon leaving the Apostolic Nunciature, Pope Francis’ motorcade made its way to Villamor Airbase. Spectators from both sides of the road have agreed that the motorcade was slower this time, maybe upon the request of the pope to interact with more people on his last day.

Arriving at the Villamor Airbase, a group of children from the DSWD performed a farewell number much to the delight of Pope Francis. Government officials were also there to bid the pontiff goodbye. Before entering the plane, the pope once turned towards the crowd, flashed a big smile, and waved.

Check out the photos below and enjoy.
