Pope Francis arrives in the Philippines: Arrival Photos & Video

It's January 15, 2015, one BIG day - the arrival of Pope Francis in the Philippines or the start of his 4-day visit to the Philippines.

Pope Francis, on board Sri Lankan plane, arrived in the Philippines around 6PM today at the Villamor Airbase, and was given a huge welcome by the Filipino people, who are thrilled to experience this rare chance of seeing the world's Catholic leader in the country and listening to his inspiring messages on the coming days.

A live stream video was provided online by RTV Malacanang, showing Pope Francis' arrival at Villamor Airbase up to the open motorcade that followed.
