Items given by Pope Francis on display in Nagasaki

A cross and other items that Pope Francis donated to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Nagasaki have been put on display in the southern Japanese city.

Pope Francis visited Nagasaki City on November 24. He issued a call for the abolition of nuclear weapons and held a mass which drew about 30,000 people.

The display began on Saturday at the Archbishop Hall. It features a vestment the pope wore at the mass, as well as a cross made of black coral.

Also on show is a note he wrote in Italian when he took a rest at the hall.

He expresses his gratitude for the welcome he received.

The display will be held on Saturdays and Sundays through December 22.
