Pope Francis: Short trip to Budapest

Pope Francis stays only seven hours in the Hungarian capital Budapest

Pope Francis arrived in Hungary this morning for an unusually brief visit, which is expected to highlight differences between the views of the Pope and the nationalist and anti-immigration policies of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

Asked about the recent surgery he underwent, the Pope said he was feeling very well.

Francis met with Prime Minister Orban and President Janos Ander, as well as with bishops and representatives of some Jewish communities before officiating at a service that will conclude a church meeting that began last Sunday.
