Paraguay: Thousands line Asuncion's streets on eve of Pope Francis' departure

Thousands of pilgrims lined the streets of Asuncion, Saturday evening, following Pope Francis' final prayers of the day at the city's cathedral. Some could be seen dancing and singing while others could be seen waving the flag of Argentina. The Bishop of Rome's schedule was delayed a couple of times due to him being so tired from non-stop commitments that have been part of his three-country tour of Latin America. He previously visited Ecuador and Bolivia. Paraguay has one of the largest Catholic populations on the continent, so the country saw a huge turnout wherever the Pope went, especially as thousands of Argentinians travelled to the country to see the pontiff. The Pope is set to head back to the Vatican on Sunday.
