Pope Francis Wraps Up Mexico Trip Near The U.S. Border

Ending his six-day trip to Mexico in Ciudad Juárez, Pope Francis visits a prison and a college, and plans to hold mass about 300 feet away from the Rio Grande River, a landmark that marks Mexico’s border with the United States.

NPR’s Carrie Kahn speaks with Here & Now’s Lisa Mullins about the highlights of the pope’s week, in the country with the second-highest number of Catholics in the world.
