Bangkok, Thailand - November 21, 2019 – Yesterday, Pope Francis went to the National Stadium "Supachalasai" in Bangkok to celebrate the Eucharist before 40,000 faithful actually present, and the 20,000 who participated via giant screens in the nearby stadium of Thephasadin. The Pontiff rode in the “Pope-Mobile” among the faithful and then presided over the Eucharistic celebration in the Liturgical Memory of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. During his homily, Pope Francis invited Thai Catholics to become missionary disciples, stressing that "a missionary disciple is not a mercenary of the faith or a producer of proselytes, but rather a humble mendicant who feels the absence of brothers, sisters and mothers with whom to share the irrevocable gift of reconciliation that Jesus grants to all."
