Pope Francis concluded his five-day trip to Portugal with a mass attended by an estimated 1.5 million people. The mass was the grand finale of the World Youth Day festival, with many young people camping out overnight to attend. During his visit, Pope Francis engaged in off-the-cuff conversations with young people and emphasized inclusivity in the church. He also announced that the next World Youth Day will be held in Seoul, South Korea in 2027, marking the event's return to Asia after more than 30 years.
