Pope Francis arrives in Chile

Pope Francis arrived in Chile on Monday for his first big trip of 2018. He'll spend several days in Chile before traveling north to visit Peru.

Pope Francis arrived in Chile on Monday (January 15) evening, the first stop in a trip that also includes Peru, as he hopes to inject new confidence in two staunchly Catholic countries where the Church's credibility has been severely damaged by sexual abuse scandals.

The Argentine pontiff will begin his trip in the Chilean capital of Santiago, then head to Temuco and Iquique.

In Peru, he will stop in Lima, Puerto Maldonado and Trujillo.

A planned mass on Tuesday (January 16) morning in Santiago is expected to attract more than 500,000 people, government officials said.
