CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis has arrived in Kazakhstan, touching down at the Nur-Sultan Nazarbayev airport to begin a three-day visit.

President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev led a delegation greeting the Pontiff at an airport ceremony, after which the Pope made a courtesy call at the presidential palace.

On Wednesday morning the Pope will attend the opening session of the VII Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions. He will celebrate Mass for the country’s small Catholic community that afternoon, then participate in the closing session of the inter-faith meeting on Thursday before returning to Rome.
