Pope Francis is set to begin his second day of events in Quebec’s capital city as part of his tour that he has called a pilgrimage of penance. The pontiff will host his second mass on Canadian soil later this morning. The event will take place at the shrine of Ste-Anne-de-Beaupre, east of Quebec City.
