Manila, Philippines - Pope Francis arrived at the airport January 15 before greeting hundreds of thousands of cheering Catholics as he toured the streets of the capital, waving from the back of his “popemobile.” Francis is the third pope in 45 years to visit the largest predominantly Catholic country in Asia. Authorities expect up to 5 million people to attend the public Mass scheduled at Manila's Rizal Park on January 18. While focusing on the poor, the pope made a point of criticizing corruption in the Philippines and defending the church’s ban on contraception.Launch Slideshow 4 PHOTOS
