Pope Francis Prays at Mother Teresa's Memorial

Alessandra Tarantino

Pope Francis paid a 10-hour visit to North Macedonia on Tuesday and prayed at the memorial of the country's most famous native daughter, Mother Teresa.

After landing at Skopje's airport, Francis went by car - a typically small Volkswagen Jetta - for talks with outgoing President Gjore Ivanov, ''Euronews'' reports. 

Francis was later surrounded by Mother Teresa's sari-clad Sisters of Charity nuns in praying before the memorial, built in the remains of the church where the nun was baptized in 1910.

He also celebrated a Mass for the tiny Catholic community in the country of 2.1 million.
